Mostly Music - Little Plot
30 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed this film, but I'm particularly interested in the black western genre, so my reaction is probably not typical.

This is not so much of a movie as a musical revue, featuring Louis Jordan's and his band. They spend a lot of time at a ranch, wearing western clothes and performing great music. There are some horseback chases at the end, when a flimsy plot is interspersed into the film. It's an extremely low-budget affair, and looks like the whole movie was shot over the course of a weekend at a dude ranch.

The music is a lot of fun, and this film really made me smile. Two of the actors, Tom Southern and Maceo Sheffield, also appeared in the Herb Jeffries' black westerns of the late 30s.

And, there is a topless woman in the film that I was totally not expecting.
