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>

Goofs

When Gene jumps in the wagon being driven by the two escaping bandits, he fights and defeats them one at a time as the wagon is being driven at breakneck speed through the terrain. The problem is, they could have stopped the wagon at any time and both could have taken him on together and had a better chance of defeating him. See more »

Standard Autry film
30 October 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Basically your regular Autry picture. Judging by this one and the other Autry pics I've seen from just after the War, it looks like here Republic was trying to depart with each film from standard oater locations. In the case of this one, though, when they decided to add big-city bank robbers, a search for the stolen money, and a noir-esque gun moll to the Autry brew, they did little to thicken the stew. Diverting, but standard. And........ where is Robin Hood?
