Storyline

The Judge and the other passenger, Parson Trimble, decide to put up at the ranch owned by Sherry Lynn, Eddie's sweetheart, and her mother Ma Lynn. They are waylaid again, but the outlaws are driven off, and Nevada, an undercover man for the Judge, allows one of captured men to escape so he can follow him to the gang hideout. The Judge also deputizes Eddie. Nevada gets in with the gang, led by Duke and Dad Dillon, and is given the assignment to kill the Judge, whose first act in Rawhide was to close Duke's saloon and fire the city manager, Colonel Blake, a hireling of the Dillons. Eddie, Nevada and Soapy find evidence at the Dillon mine that they have been stealing government gold shipments.

Bringing Law And Order to Rawhide
17 March 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

PRC must have mortgaged the studio to give this film color. Could it have been a birthday present to their cowboy hero star Eddie Dean? We can only speculate.

Eddie and sidekick Roscoe Ates are drafted into helping Judge Forrest Taylor bring and law and order to their town of Rawhide. There's a corrupt saloon and mine owner played by Warner Richmond who with his son Dennis Moore has the illegal activities pretty well organized. Taylor is going to be a kind of Judge Seabury and Dean and Ates are on the commission.

What is revealed by the film is a prior relationship with Taylor, Richmond and Moore that is the key to the whole film. In the end corruption is driven from Rawhide.

Dean has a couple of nice songs to sing including the public domain Home On The Range which every singing cowboy did a version of. Colorado Serenade is a pleasant enough film, quite a revelation for a PRC release to be done in color.
