Storyline

Cavalry scouts Gene Autry (Gene Autry) and Pat Buttram (Pat Buttram) are ordered by the President (of the whole U.S. of A.) to break up an Arizona frontier ring which uses Indian raids to cover up its bandit activities. Carolina Cotton (Carolina Cotton) works with Gene and Pat, seeking revenge against the gang's leader, Dave Kilgrain (Harry Lauter) , who murdered her father. Lots of talk and Indian tribal dancing and stuff before Carolina gets around to shooting Kilgrain and Gene and Pat round up the rest of the gang. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

not great, but rarely a loser, either
30 September 2003 | by (Pocono Summit, PA) – See all my reviews

When I think of classic westerns, no Gene Autry flicks come to mind. But, when I think of western stars, he's among the FIRST to come to mind. So, it never surprises me when I give his films just mediocre marks. Such is my grade for this effort. It has what you'd expect in a Gene Autry movie: plenty of tunes (even a Hank Williams standard and a female singer/yodeler); a plot and action which seems somewhat contrived; and lots of Pat Buttram foolishness. Here we have pseudo-resigned cavalrymen Autry and Buttram planted in Arizona as start-up cattlemen. Actually, they're there to learn why Indian raids are occurring in an area where a no-raid treaty exists. Only SLIGHT bellicose Apache behavior is shown, however; and, it's clarified that THAT is encouraged by caucasians. As always, after enduring intrigue from many angles, Gene and Pat get the job done and the bad guys are quelled.
