Storyline

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 <mvanauken@a1access.net>

Robin Hood of Texas
3 January 2009 | by (Hamilton OHIO) – See all my reviews

Robin Hood of Texas was one of five movies Gene Autry made for Republic, while waiting for the courts to decide if his contract was still valid after serving in the Army Air Corps. Autry maintained that the time limit had expired while he was in the service and Republic claimed that they still had the right to his services. Autry had returned to Republic to find that Roy Rogers was known the Western king of the box office. He wanted to produce his own films over at Columbia, but needed a release from Republic. Robin Hood of Texas was heavy on music and comedy, using the talents of the Cass County Boys, Autry's musical back-up on his radio show. Republic used the term "Robin Hood" in several of their movies to create the image of the hero who often had to flee from the law to capture the real thieves. In this particular picture, Autry and his friends are accused of assisting bank robbers make their getaway.
