News photographer Clementine "Clem" Benson and reporter Hack Hackett are ordered to follow Gene. The group finds quarters at the "Bar Nothing" dude ranch, winter quarters for Tex's rodeo group, and Tex soon tangles with Hackett in a quarrel. The latter wins a thousand-dollar bag of gold from Sunrise, a miner who has earned his stake digging in the supposedly abandoned mine beneath Gold Ridge. Hackett spots a fugitive Chicago racketeer, Crowley, who is hiding out from the mob he has double-crossed.

Gene Autry saves the rodeo.
4 March 2006 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

Thanks to the Encore Westerns channel for playing the fully restored HOME IN WYOMIN'. Singing cowboy and radio star Gene Autry comes to the rescue to solve a murder mystery at the rodeo during a Frontier Days celebration. The rodeo promoter Tex Harrison(James Seay)has been drinking recklessly and has become involved with Chicago gangster's. Clementine Benson(Fay McKenzie)is a newspaper correspondent sent to dispute the reputation of all around hero Autry.

Sidekick 'Frog' Millhouse(Smiley Burnette)has his own sidekick...a smaller version of himself 'Tadpole' Millhouse(Joe Strauch Jr.). This is comical in itself. Gene always manages to get a few songs in. This time the likes of "I'm Thinking Tonight of My Blue Eyes" and "Tweedle O'Twill". In honor of the female reporter there is a rousing version of "Clemetine". And whoa Nelly...Gene and Champion get to chase a gangster's sedan. Also in the cast: Olin Howland, Charles Lane, Hal Price and Forrest Taylor.
