Storyline

When an oil discovery is reported at Paxton, Oklahoma, Marshal Rex Allen immediately suspects that where there is oil, there is trouble. Rex arrives just as a band of desperadoes stage a bank hold-up and escape with $25,000 which ranchers have invested in prospective oil drillings. Rex discovers that rancher Frank Barlowe is behind the bogus oil venture which is fleecing the local ranchers. Marlowe is killed in the hectic proceedings and his son, Ned Marlowe, unwittingly carries on the oil deal. Marlowe's secret partner in the hoax, Case Lockwood, convinces Ned that Rex killed his father. Oil is actually discovered on the property and Lockwood, with his attempted land-grab scheme, is tripped up by Rex. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Rex Allen rides to the rescue !
30 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Famed Singing Cowboy actor Rex Allen stars in this well-made actioner from the waning days of the B-western. The Arizona Cowboy appears as a US Marshal who rides into town to head off a feared scam involving an oil strike and greedy scalawags bent on robbery & murder !

Rex is great in this one, with Slim Pickens and Koko the wonder horse along to aid him in this memorable sagebrush saga. Rex displays his rich baritone voice, flying fists and action skills in this fun film.

There were many singing cowboys in the Post-WWII era,with Rex Allen being one of the absolute best. I enjoyed this one and recommend it for all those fans of the Saturday matinées of yesteryear. Happy Trails !
