This short is amusing fluff for the most part, but it's real interest lies in the fact that it shows the Palm Springs California Rodeo, circa 1940, which is no longer an annual event. It was called "the rodeo of the stars" in it's heyday.
The rodeo was staged in the south end of town near the Smoke Tree area, which was near Walt Disneys ranch. Today it is a shopping center.
The film also shows some scenes of the festive parade on Palm Canyon Drive where many stars were seen in cowboy finery.
The El Mirador Hotel is seen in one shot, which was converted into a hospital and is preserved today as part of the Desert Regional Hospital.
Historically, this film is a gem.
