Storyline

Doctor Gene Autry returns as a "doctor on horseback" to the frontier town in Utah where his father was killed and finds a feud raging between mine owner Jayda McQueen and cattleman Bowie French. Gene's only friend in town is "Dusty" Cosgrove. Gene answers a summons by Karen McQueen to treat her younger brother, but the boy unexpectedly dies and McQueen comes gunning for Gene, who is saved by French's timely intervention. When one of French's gunmen is shot down by a miner, the ranch hands attack the mine and Gene aids the McQueen forces. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Just what the Doctor ordered ..........
23 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty darn good sepia-tone western from Americas' Favorite Cowboy. Gene plays a Doctor who returns home after his father's death ---- smack dab into the middle of a range war !

Gene, along with his pal Pat Butram, tries to put an end to the hostilities, while tending to those injured in the fracas. I thought the story was unique and well-written. I prefer Smiley Burnette to Butram, but he does a good job here. Denver Pyle is barely recognizable as a combatant ---- in his pre-Dukes of Hazzard days. All in all, not a bad little shoot-em-up.

This one should appeal to most B-western fans .........
