Storyline

Cattleman Gene Autry (Gene Autry) is elected mayor of Quartz City, a roaring California gold camp in 1859, and he and his pal, Marshal Breezie Larrabee (Pat Buttram), set out to tame and clean up the town. They start by ousting crooked Tod Rawlings (Harry Lauter) and his gambling hall hostess Bee Laverne (Christine Larsen). Gene beats back an attempt by Rawlings to kidnap an incoming caravan of women whose presence in the town will hasten the progress of law and order. One of the arrives, Laurie (Gail Davis), is attracted to Steve Kincaid (Russell Hayden), a con-man working for Rawlings, but she turns against him when she learns of the association. The Rawlings gang makes a last-ditch effort to take over the town. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Hijacking the Women
25 June 2013 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Thank goodness for the Alabama Hills. Those Neolithic rocks with the high Sierras in the background have always added a lot to the most unexceptional oater, including this pretty good one. Okay, gold hijacks have been a standard feature of westerns for decades, but here it's wagon loads of women that sort of get hijacked. And from the looks of the cuties on board, I'd hijack them too. No need to detail more of the plot, which others have already done.

Generally, it's an unexceptional Autry programmer, though well stocked with extras (Columbia studios, I bet) along with an entertaining mix of action, humor (Buttram & Infuhr), and song. I especially liked "On Top of Old Smoky", which Gene gives his most pleasing croon. Then too, I've blown out enough candles to recall when it was a popular mega-hit on the radio. Good thing too that Gene was able to get director English who had proved he knows how to put the cowboy elements together. Anyhow, it may not be Gene's best, but fans certainly won't be disappointed.
