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>

Different kind of movie, first time I ever saw Jock Mahoney

I am glad to find the name of this movie again. It was such a long time ago when I first saw it, I could only remember J. Mahoney singing to his horse in the voice of Gene Autry as Eddie Arnold was watching a movie. I really went in to see Eddie Arnold. I was not impressed with Jock Mahoney at all thinking he was a bit weak. It was not until much later that I learned that he was doing all the stunt work for the Durango Kid, and was a superb horseman and stuntman, jumping from a roof into the saddle. Ouch!! Later he made very good movies and my favorite was "Slim Carter" where he started out struck on himself after becoming a star, and became quite humble over an orphaned kid. Thanks for letting me share.
