Eddie Dean, the jovial singin cowboy, gets involved here with cattle rustlers and has his friend go undercover to get to the bottom of the theft ring. In the course of corralling these galloots, he finds time to sing a few above average cowboy tunes ----- all in an hour of undemanding B-movie fare.
Dean was never the most convincing hero-type , but his pleasant demeanor and excellent singing & songwriting were among the best of the era. Dean was overshadowed by Gene,Roy as well as Rex Allen. Considering the low budgets and quick production times, the film could have been much worse.
This one is so-so, probably of interest only to die-hard fans of the lanky singer.
