Rancher Rex Allen (Rex Allen) receives a summons from his uncle (Forrest Taylor), an old time frontiersman, that he is in trouble. The uncle has been hired to lead a modern-day band of adventurers on a wagon train retracing the route taken by their ancestors 100 years ago. Before Rex can talk to his uncle, the uncle is murdered, and Rex sets out to find the killer and the motive by taking his uncle's place as the leader of the wagon train. He discovers that the motive was the gold that the original pioneers had cached in a cave on the trail to California, and now has to find the culprit that is after it. Written by Les Adams <>

The Arizona Cowboy heads to Utah ............
17 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this pretty good oater from 1951, baritone-voiced Rex Allen finds himself called to avenge a death and lead an "anniversary" wagon train. Faithful sidekick Buddy Ebsen is along for comic support.

Rex Allen was at home in the saddle, had a good voice and was photogenic..... this film shows why the studio was expecting big things from this singin cowboy. The plot, casting and music here were a notch above a number of other singing cowboy films of the day. Ebsen was a convincing sidekick here , in a role pretty similar to the one he had with Fess Parker in the later Davy Crockett film series.

I enjoyed this one and wish the B-westerns had lasted longer, so Rex could have matured into Americas's number one cowboy .........
