A good Autry movie
6 August 2000 | by state40See all my reviews

This is a good Gene Autry movie.This movie has a young Roy Rogers in it.He plays a good (bad) character.He is part of a singing group called " The O'keefe Brothers" (The Son's of the Pioneers) and they provide some very good songs in the movie.Gene and Hope Manning also sing some songs.It has a pretty good plot to it as well.Smiley Burnett displays his musical ability and his comedy ability.It has a very short fight scene between Gene and Roy(guess who wins?).All in all an enjoyable movie.
