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>

Fudging the Mold

Gene produced this entry, while Columbia distributed. I mention this because the programmer includes stock footage from Columbia that I'm sure they made available to Gene. It wasn't uncommon for budget productions to use stock footage for expensive scenes, and I'm sure shrewd businessman Autry did it in an entirely legal manner.

Anyhow, the movie is a better-than-average entry, with some unusual touches— for example, a longer run-time (70-minutes); Gene loses out more than usual; he shares good guy chores with Kirby Grant; and no buffoonery from Buttram in an unusual straight role. The plot's a fairly standard one where Gene helps pacify hostile Apaches and stop gun-running from an ex-Austrian nobleman and his half-Apache hit-man. There're lots of flying fists, but not much hard-riding or fast-shooting. There's also lots of striking desert scenery, along with a really good sing-along "Chatanooga…". Gail Davis doesn't get much screen time, but makes the most of what she has. All in all, I thought the programmer was an entertaining effort, breaking some of the standard matinée conventions.

A "7" on the matinée scale.
