All the elements of the winning Autry programmer are presentgood plot, lovely ladies, hard riding, plus music and humorall smoothly blended. Nothing really exceptional unless you count that sudden gusher out the hillside. Gene's working to keep a gold mine out of hands of devious plotters, and also uphold the virtues of cattle and horses. Of course Gene knows about heritage of the old West, at least the movie version. Then too, Republic always supplied the star with good production values. Also, look for the great Tom London as one of the baddies. No matinée oater would be complete without him. I can only guess at how many hundreds he was in over the years. On the tuneful side, little Edith Fellows manages to inject a winsome juvenile presence without being obnoxious, while Frog battles the bad guys when not offering up his slapstick brand of comedy. Nothing special herejust another solid installment of Gene's outstanding years with Republic Studios.
A "6" on the matinée scale.
