One of the best of the 40's Musical Horse Operas I've ever seen....
11 March 2004 | by (Beaufort SC) – See all my reviews

Saw this for the first time the evening of March 11, 2004 on TCM. Lee "Lasses" White is a bit hard to take, but Hobart Cavanaugh is great! It was also nice to see Roy Barcroft and Tom London again, doing their thing together, too. When you think of Tim Holt going on to play in "Treasure of Sierra Madre,", Tom London with a role in "Twelve Noon", and Barcroft as the Sheriff in the film version of "Oklahoma", and the radio performer Janet Waldo, all of whom are in this one... along with great music by Whitley, it is very entertaining...and quite witty, too. The only other movies like this, from this time and this genre, that are as entertaining are the Gene Autry films of the early 1940's. But I liked this cast better than those used in most Autry flicks.
