Storyline

Trucking executive Ross Lambert (Edmund MacDonald) doubles his rates and Roy decides to try and convince old Colonel Silas Popen (Walter Catlett) to run his riverboat as far as Cherokee City and transport the cattle that way. Roy and his friends plan a "western" welcome for Popen and his daughter Mary Lou (Ruth Terry), but James Barabee (Paul Harvey, head of the cattleman's association, sends Roy a wire warning him that Popen hates and fears anything smacking of the "wild west." Lambert and his henchman Cully Bronson (William Haade) intercept the wire and start a campaign to make Cherokee City appear lawless and wild, so that Popen will refuse to bring his steamboats up the ...

A Dose of Slapstick
5 September 2007 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Roy Rogers (as Roy), Smiley Burnette (as Frog), George "Gabby" Hayes (as Gabby), and "The Sons of the Pioneers" defend Cherokee City ranchers against taxes imposed on transporting cattle. Edmund McDonald (as Ross Lambert) leads the evil-doers.

The story is slight. Mr. Burnette and Mr. Hayes team-up for a ludicrous "two-men-in-the-horse" joke. This, and action sequences appear to have been speeded up for dramatic and/or comic effect. The film includes a generous, interesting amount of location work; climaxing with a storm-drenched river scene. Unfortunately, the relatively low budget makes certain sequences appear more technically incompetent than exciting. Song highlights are when Mr. Rogers sings with Riverboat workers, on "Who's Gonna Help Me Sing?" and "The River Robin".
