Roy Rogers attempts to to help save Gabby Hayes' ranch for wayward boys from foreclosure, when one of Gabby's wards is targeted by the partners of outlaw Lyle Talbot, the boy's deceased father.
This one's a little sappy, even for a Saturday matinée western, though impossible to entirely dislike. Roy, Gabby, Dale Evans, Bob Nolan, and The Sons Of The Pioneers are all still fun to watch, while some of the kid actors give pretty decent performances.
There isn't much to recommend in the way of action or gun-play, but there's a few decent songs, including a neat Halloween song and dance number from Roy, Dale, and Gabby.
Though not really one of the better films in the genre, Roy Rogers fans will probably be a little bit more forgiving than the average viewer.
