Trivia

Easy-going sidekick Ray Whitley was much more than just a loyal friend to cowboy heroes like Tim Holt. In addition to being a popular singer of western ballads, Whitley wrote Gene Autry's signature song, Back in the Saddle Again. The song was purchased by Autry for just $200. After Autry collaborated with Whitley on changes in the chorus, verses, and melody, the song eventually became one of the most popular western songs in history. See more »

Excellent cast, good direction, fair script

When TCM aired this in September, 2010, it was one of several Tim Holt films for the day.

I can admire Tim Holt, and recognize his talent, but, to be honest, his westerns were often slow, even lame.

"Along the Rio Grande" was nothing special, except for an excellent cast, some good dialog, and pretty good directing, and two very good singers, although of different styles, Ray Whitely and Betty Jane Rhodes, who seems to have had a short film career.

As is so often the case, the "humor" is not very funny, although Emmett Lynn did his best with the material.

Outstanding, and with one of the best roles of his career, is Slim Whitaker. In fact, this is such a good part for him that to see him is reason enough to watch this movie, especially for western fans.
