George 'Gabby' Hayes,
When director Allan Dwan initially read the script, he thought the film was going to be a dramatic disaster, but he had the script rewritten as a spoof/parody with the co-operation of cast members, especially Broderick Crawford, Franchot Tone, Mischa Auer, and Andy Devine. The Universal front office didn't seem happy with the decision, and the film carries no producer credit. See more »
If you like westerns you must absolutely get this film if it ever gets released on DVD. It's a comic western with plenty of exciting western action. Two actors who rarely made westerns, Franchot Tone and Broderick Crawford, star as an eastern U.S. Marchall and a good-old boy cowboy respectively, who have to deal with organized cattle rustlers. The Cattlemen's Protective Organization is actually rustling cattle from ranchers who won't join the organization. Peggy Moran is a rancher's daughter who aggressively pursues her man, Franchot, although today we'd consider her a stalker. Andy Devine and Mischa Auer are the comedy relief, in a film that needs no relief because everyone has great comic scenes.
