Storyline

Territorial Ranger Gene Autry is ordered to protect crusading publisher John Randolph and his printer Smiley Burnette from Art Selby and Clint Raybold, who are using Indian raids as a cover-up for their activities. Randolph is killed by Gene's outlaw brother, using the name of Jack Austin, who is working for Selby. Believing Gene responsible for her father's death, Ann Randolph, gets a warrant issued for his arrest. Gene convinces Marshal Hackett of his innocence and that he can deliver the real killers, and persuades his misled brother Jack to help him capture Selby.

Brotherly love .........
29 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This later film from the singing cowboy's career boasts good writing and is further aided by the presence of the great Smiley Burnette. Gene takes on a protection racket, murderers and a wayward kid brother. Along the way, he croons a few tunes and Smiley gets to sing & clown around as comic relief.

This film was not especially noteworthy, but the teaming of Autry, Smiley and Gail Davis was an enjoyable combination. Bob Livingston also appears in this pretty standard Autry film. The action was nicely done, but more action scenes would have been preferable.

This one is average, but Autry fans should enjoy it.
