In the first of the Roach Studio western "Streamliners" (followed by "Calaboose" and "Prairie Chickens') wandering cowboys Jimmy and Pidge are introduced as none-too-bright sons of the sage, with Jimmy's role primarily to keep Pidge out of girl trouble. They are afoot, as Pidge had figured that two-pair in a poker game was worth betting their horses on. After a stint of rounding up wild Brahmas for rancher Cardigan with bad results, Pidge becomes smitten with a guest, Marcia at a neighboring dude ranch and takes a job there to be near her. Jimmy follows in order to "save" Pidge, with most of the last half of the film devoted to a skit where Jimmy has blacked out the windows in the bunkhouse in order to make Pidge think it is still night to cause him to stand-up Marcia.

Dudes Are Pretty People (1942)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Hal Roach comedy directed by his son was the first of three films in the "Streamliners" series. Jimmy Rogers and Noah Beery, Jr. play cowboys who lose their horses in a poker game so they end up working at a "dude" ranch where Beery falls in love with a woman. Having seen Brokeback Mountain, there's a lot of jokes that could be made about this film but that would be giving it too much credit. While I somewhat enjoyed the second film in this series, this one here is poor from the start. The screenplay is poor and doesn't allow the actors anything to work with but I doubt either of them could have done much anyways.
