When the showboat hits town, two men use the parade as a distraction to rob the bank. Their accomplice is Pop, the clown from the showboat. He leaves the money on the boat and tells his daughter Patsy to bring it to him at a later stop on the river. When Patsy arrives without the money, both her and her father are made prisoners. So she sends her trained dog back to the showboat for help. Written by

Fun saturday morning flick w/ Autry in a different setting
Pleasing western fare has Autry and "Frog" holded up in a showboat (a change of scene, which seems to have been the key to Republic's mid period Autrys). They're trying to discover who robbed the bank with all their money in it -- the girl singer (Lee, enchanting as usual) whose father helped the robbers is their only lead, and she's reluctant to help. Some good songs, including the title song by Jule Styne, and some fairly authentic showboat sets liven things up with the usual chases and fistfights.
