Storyline

Immediately following the Civil War, former Confederate cavalry captain Gene Autry, now a sergeant in the Union Army, is assigned to help break up Indian raids on the frontier. While working with a scout, Shadrach Jones, Gene tangles with and is forced to lick Lt. Randolph Mason, who is in love with Melody Colton, daughter of rancher Jim Colton. Gene manages to forestall one Indian raid, fails to stop another one but does stop the gun-running activities of Curt Raidler and the Apache Kid. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Not bad for a Gene Autry film
29 May 2011 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

In a sense, I agree with the previous reviewer. James Griffith is horribly miscast as an Indian. He's too tall, and too old to be classified as a "kid" (with a die-job and the proper makeup, Dick Jones would have been much better in the role). That said, this is one of the best Autry films, mainly due to the added action (outlaws actually get shot and die, instead of roped or getting their gun shot out of their hand). Most of Autry's movies were horribly benign, but this one is not. Even James Griffith gives us his best, even if he is miscast. Gene does some fine singing in this one, notably Chattanoogie Shoeshine Boy. Green Acres alum Pat Buttram is on hand, along with lovely Gail Davis. A good one.
