Storyline

When Ed Wheeler shoots Jim Granby, Gene brings him in. But Wheeler says even if Granby dies he cannot he charged because he has already served 10 years for Granby's supposed murder. Then in flashback Wheeler relates how he and Granby founded Goldtown based on an exaggerated supply of gold and how when Granby blackmailed him, he thought he killed him and confessed to the murder.

Quotes

Smiley Burnette: Well, I just wouldn't want to scare you, lady. Nobody's ever seen 'em... that is close, anyhow. Ever so often they come ridin' out of Ghost Canyon, up there where there's mists and clouds. If you look, you can see right now. Down out of their hidden canyons they come, like they was ridin' out of another world. Protectin' their hidden gold, that's why they're hauntin' us -- keepin' gold-hungry miners from diggin' up their graves. Look at 'em, their blood gone from their veins. Their eyes cold as...

Judge Gene dispenses six-gun justice !
23 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the singin cowboys last films and was better than I expected. I think it compares favorably with several of his 1940's films in terms of writing and presentation. In this one, Gene is called upon to judge a murder case for which the accused might have already been punished for !

Smiley Burnette is back for this film, and is as good as ever. In many ways he was the King of the sidekicks ---- equally gifted at comedy, music and general hi-jinks. Gail Davis does a good job and the action is very entertaining. Overall, a pleasant diversion.

Better than some, but not the best of the series.........
