Storyline

The small church, pastored by Ted Burke, in a western town is struggling to stay alive as all the men gather at Jack Higgins' Mustang Saloon every Sunday. Burke decides to ask Higgins to close his business on Sunday, but Higgins only concern is to find a baritone to sing in the saloon's quartet, and has his henchies toss Ted out into the street. Ted decides to fight fire with fire, so he gathers up the down-and-out vaudeville act of Chase & Chase (who don't take long to show why they are down and out) and knife-thrower Steve Clemente, and a dozen or so western musicians from Gower Gulch as the before-the-sermon at his tabernacle. Higgins sends his rowdies over to bust up the Sunday morning competition. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Preacher competes with dance hall for patrons in the Old West...
7 May 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Standard Technicolor short from Warner Bros. in the '30s using their up-and-coming DICK FORAN and JANE WYMAN to head the cast of a story about a preacher who has to look for patrons in a nearby dance hall where he's met with resistance until they discover he can sing.

JANE WYMAN is a dance hall girl with her six "sextettes" joining her for a song called "The Charming Soubrette on the Police Gazette," a lively dance number with garish costuming. Wyman's number is interrupted by a young pastor who wants to draw attention to the fact that he'd like to close the saloon on Sundays to get people to attend his church service.

All ends well when Foran gets involved in a street fight and proves his mettle with a Sunday punch. He also attracts the attention of the bar owner when he delivers a lusty baritone voice while singing "Beyond the Open Road." We also get a low comedy pratfall routine by a rather unknown vaudeville couple before we get to Foran's song that closes the story.

Entertaining short passes the time pleasantly enough.
