When the bank is robbed, Gene and the boys are singing nearby and the Chief arrests them as gang members diverting attention but lets them go thinking they will lead them to the others. Duke Mantel double-crosses the rest of the gang and with the money, accidently heads for the dude ranch where Gene is. The rest of the gang eventually show up to retrieve the money just as Gene and the boys find themselves locked in a building. Written by Maurice VanAuken <>

A "5"on the Matinée Scale
21 October 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

There's a slam-bang finale with-- surprise, surprise-- some good rear-projection. Usually, a matinée production's got the rear-projection going one speed while the horse or buckboard goes another. Not here. Anyhow, Gene and crew start up a dude ranch, even while the cops think they've robbed a bank. Meanwhile, the real baddies show up, except they're even meaner to each other than to Gene. It's a more complex screenplay than usual, playing more like a modern crime drama than an oater. Frankly, too much so for my liking, plus too much time is spent indoors rather than out. Nonetheless, the bad guys really are a convincing lot, while there're two eye-candy girls instead of just one. Holloway does comic relief, but in a less annoying way than usual. On the whole, it's a rather odd Autry oater, his last for Republic. His new studio, Columbia, would provide a big production boost. Good!

A "5" on the matinée scale.
