Bob Hope plays Potter, returning to claim his father's gold, but it can't be found. Mike, played by Jane Russell, is a leader of a gang of thieves, and Roy Rogers as a federal marshal hot on the trail of thieves. It is very funny and lots of gimmicks, and the musical numbers are very good. I never realized that Roy Rogers had such a good singing voice. Jane Russell and Bob Hope do their own songs which are enjoyable, but not as memorable as "Buttons & Bows" from the original. One of the funniest scenes is with Trigger, Roy Roger's horse sleeping with Hope. 7/10
