The new Sheirff is unable to catch Pete and Pete now sends him and the posse out of town where Indians wait in ambush while he and his men ride into town for a big raid.

another example of a good 'B' show
15 January 2002 | by (Joliet, IL) – See all my reviews

This is yet another movie that is not on video and few have heard of that's well worth the viewing if you can catch it on cable. It's enough of western and musical to hold the interest of fans of both, plus good comedy thrown in. It's not too much of either western or musical to make the other seem out of place. Good numbers, good acting, funny lines all in 70 minutes and a chance for those not familiar with Western Swing to catch what that is. Ironically, the two best fight scenes include women. I gave it a 7, it's well worth the watch, much better than some 7's, well deserving and fun.
