One of Monte Hale's better efforts
19 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Monte Hale appeared in a number of Post-WWII singing cowboy films , of varying quality. The amiable crooner brought a pleasant voice and good ol' boy demeanor to these films. This one is one of his better efforts, with a fine overall result.

Hale does a good job in the role of the lawman impersonator and throws in a few toe-tapping musical interludes as well. Adrian Booth (Lorna Gray) turns in her usual fine performance and has good chemistry with the singer.The script and casting are acceptable, but nothing that would stand out.

All in all, a fine film that represents the non-challenging entertainment that these sort of matinée films were designed for.

Not a classic, but worth a look .......
