One of Autry's best with a young Roy Rogers and the Sons of the Pioneers.
28 October 1998 | by revranSee all my reviews

Gene Autry and Smiley Burnett (Frog) are singing and croaking their way through another Saturday matinee. Look for a very young Roy Rogers (Leonard Slye) and the Sons of the Pioneers.
