Unexpectedly deft and charming musical comedy.
10 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

Many miles removed from the courtly, stodgy, and synthetic quasi-cowboy epics normally associated with Gene Autry. Spry and amusing script must have been snuck into Republic via some crew member's lunchbox (even the studio's trotting out their complete library of ancient stock footage for an obligatory stampede climax plays as DELIBERATE high comedy). Add a delightful score, an excellent supporting cast, and a young and almost relaxed looking performance from the star and you come up with a very rare package: an Autry that even an audience allergic to cowboy camp can enjoy. All in all a small delight.
