Quotes

Smith: We're confronted with an unusual problem, Mr. Autry. While our population has almost doubled in population in the past five years our water supply has been steadily diminishing. The wells we've depended on would be inadequate under any circumstances, but now they're drying up. Mesa City must have additional water immediately, at any cost.
Gene Autry: Well, assuming that the ranchers accept your proposition, what about the Indians? They have rights, too.

Columbia Boosts Gene
20 June 2013 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Reviewer Henchman's commentary furnishes an excellent context for the movie. Columbia studios gave productions like this many more resources than the average Autry programmer. There's lots of action, some good desert backgrounds plus alpine scenery. The plot's more complex than usual but minus many tiresome clichés. I really like the amusing classroom version of "She'll be Comin' 'round the Mountain". It's charmingly done. Also, I had to look twice to make sure that was an actual TV broadcasting in the Stone Age of TV, 1947, and in a western, no less.

Note that there's no buffoonish comedy relief that came to identify Autry's later programmers with kids entertainment. In fact, the movie's good enough to be considered a B-western instead of a matinée programmer. Note too the presence of a young Bobby Blake as Mike. Whatever his adult transgressions, he was certainly an affecting child star. All in all, the movie's a superior entry in the Autry series.
