Storyline

Cowboy movie star Stoney Rhodes (Jock Mahoney as Jock O'Mahoney) has made one western film and thinks he is on a personal appearance tour paid for by the studio, but he and his film were so bad that the studio, unknown to Stoney, has cancelled his contract, and his mother has mortgaged her home to supply the funds necessary for the tour and expenses of Stoney and his agent. (Stoney is shown in front of two theatres where Columbia, missing no bets, has displays of one-sheet posters from "Strawberry Roan" with Gene Autry and "The Undercover Man" with Glenn Ford.) Reporter Vera Wright (Jeff Donnell), following him to get a story of a failure, informs Stoney that he is a never-was has-been, and they find themselves stranded in the hometown of Eddy Arnold, where Eddy's film "cousin" Carolina Cotton (Carolina Cotton) quickly takes a shine to the shy and clumsy Stoney. Eddy sees a print of Stoney's film in which the character is singing "I Can't Shake the Sands of Texas From My Shoes" and is... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Also in the movie but not mentioned are (The Willis Bros) Guy,Skeeter and Vic along with bass-man Chuck Wright. At that time, in their more than 50 year career, they were known as The Oklahoma Wranglers. The Willis Brothers were a featured part of Eddy Arnold's stage and radio shows. If you look closely they can be seen doing part of their stage show with their routine around Skeeter's trick fiddling, the finale of their stage show. Skeeter mentioned they really enjoyed the shoot em up sequences and they went through a lot of ammo. Also in the band scene they were shown playing instruments other than those they were noted. Not guitar, accordion, fiddle and upright bass. These are stories related to me by my uncles the Willis Brothers. My father started the group in the early 30s when the original members were Joe, Guy and Skeeter.
