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>

Corny but interesting & somewhat funny.
3 April 2004 | by (Carencro LA) – See all my reviews

I had just finished watching Gene Autry in "Rancho Grande" on the Western Channel when I noticed that the Western Channel was going to show "Hoedown" immediately following "Rancho Grande". Starting watching "Hoedown" and nearly fell over when Jock Mahoney, playing a cowboy singing star, started to sing and the voice was that of Gene Autry...Fairly funny and interesting inside Hollywood joke and pretty good tongue in cheek acting by Mahoney, especially when he sings in his own voice. Carolina Cotton and Eddy Arnold are ok also. It's not often that one either sees or hears Gene Autry as a guest star or making an uncredited appearance as he does in this film. Of course since this is a Columbia film and Gene was producing his own films at Columbia and had ties to Jock Mahoney (later the star of Autry's Range Rider series) it all makes sense. Pretty good film if one is inclined toward this genre.
