Good performance by Gene.
12 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Gene Autry film was the first to use Faye McKenzie as Gene's leading lady, and she was excellent as Marie Elaina. Gene also was dashing as the movie's hero and the perfect gentleman. This movie included Smiley Burnette as Gene's usual side kick and Harold Huber as the duo's guide. You would not want to miss that comical combination. Another notable member of the cast is Duncan Renaldo who has a small role in this movie. He was also in other Gene Autry films and was later known for his role as the Cisco Kid. Last of all, the music in the movie was stunning. The title song "Down Mexico Way" was written by Michael Carr and Joseph Kennedy the same song writers that wrote "South of the Border" which is also sung in the movie. All around an excellent movie that no Gene Autry fan should miss.
