Among Gene's Best
19 July 2011 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Superior mix of the usual Autry staples. Gene's out to save English boy's ranch by selling ranch horses to the army. Of course, there are baddies trying to get the army contract by using dishonest tactics. Also along the way is the expected blend of humor, romance and song all piloted by old studio pro Joe Kane

In my book, Gene's best movies were with Republic, which specialized in matinée westerns. Here, the studio popped for scenic Lone Pine locations and a ton of army extras, along with an above average script. The comedy set-ups are particularly inventive, genuinely amusing without being silly. I did notice one trip-wire scene—too bad they weren't abolished sooner. Anyway, a youthful Gene is at his peak, nicely complemented by a winsome Judith Allen and a surprisingly agile Frog Millhouse. Fans of gunplay will be disappointed since there's very little. However, the climactic horse race supplies a lot of acrobatic action. All in all, the film's a really entertaining blend, among Autry's best.
