Ferguson turns back the instant that Roy appears around the bend in the cave-tunnel, so he doesn't look long enough as Roy comes into view in the dimly-lit tunnel to be able to identify him; from getting just that split-second glance, Ferguson would not have been able to tell Allen who it was.

I'm so hungry I could eat that gee-tar.
If they don't like this song, we'll both eat it.

Riding into town, Roy Rogers and Guinn "Big Boy" Williams are mistaken for kidnappers. Chased out of town, they encounter the missing girl in question and agree to help look for her father's buried treasure, money that could spare her sister Dale Evans from marrying the rich town bully.
Another typical, albeit pleasantly entertaining Roy Rogers adventure, this has a slick villain, fun support by underused sidekick Williams, the first pairing of Roy and Dale, and an appealing performance by Mary Lee, as Dale's kid sister.
However, like a lot of Roy's later pictures, the music is a bit of a disappointment, being more in a pop vein than country or western. For example, the grand finale has Dale, Roy, and Lee singing a silly song about "The Enchilada Man"!
