Storyline

An interesting oddity in Republic's B-western series but certainly not the first or only time the studio used a movie set as the backdrop of a plot line. Newcomer Monte Hale is tying to just get a job in western films when he meet young Danny McCoy and his sister Gloria. Danny is trying to get his horse, "Pardner" into films. Monte sings a song and "Pardner" does some tricks and a casting director notices. Monte gets a singing-cowboy role and the horse gets a bit, but there is an accidental explosion, engineered by western star Rod Mason, who is jealous of Monte, and the horse is badly scared and blows his lines. Monte takes care of Sheridan in some hand-to-hand fisticuffs and "Pardner", trouper that he is, recovers and performs as expected. Republic contractees Roy Rogers and Dale Evans drop by and sing a song while "Trigger" upstages "Pardner" with some tap-dancing, and Donald Barry and Allan Lane drop by and say 'hidy."

This is a real good Republic B-western. A cowboy hero(John Dehner)on the radio wants to establish himself stronger in the movies. Standing in the way is a much younger cowboy(Monte Hale)drawing much new interest. A young boy(13 yr old Robert Blake)is also trying to get his horse into show business. The trick horse becomes a pivotal pawn in the established feud. Lorna Gray is the obligatory love interest. Cameos by Rocky Lane, Red Barry as well as Roy Rogers and Dale Evans who supply a toe tappin' tune to the half-dozen or so offerings from Foy Willing and his Riders of the Purple Sage. Just over an hour...sorta like sitting in the Kiddie Matinee on Saturday morning.
