The Wild Card on the Old Chisholm Trail
15 July 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Old Chisholm Trail which is about Johnny Mack Brown trying to drive a herd to Abilene on said trail has three bona fide cowboy heroes in the cast. In addition to Brown, Tex Ritter and Jimmy Wakely get to do a bit of singing. Unfortunately Johnny Mack Brown could not sing a note and didn't try.

Brown runs into a bit of a problem with Mady Corell who has staked a claim on the only waterhole around and she wants $5.00 a head for every steer and cow that drinks there.

It's enough to make Brown stop driving his herd and start drilling for water on Jennifer Holt's property. Holt and Correll have a dandy fight that's broken up way too soon.

In the picture are medicine show entertainers Jimmy Wakely and partner Fuzzy Knight and a mysterious singing gambler in Tex Ritter. Ritter is the wild card in this film. Sad to say though his part is badly written, it could have been more interesting, but he's letting his hormones in regard to Holt and his jealousy of Brown interfere with the job at hand.

The Old Chisholm Trail boasts some nice musical numbers which don't get in the way of the plot. Still it's the storyline that could have used some beefing up.
