Flagg is relocating flood victims to Gunsmoke Ranch. The Three Mesquiteers know Flagg to be a crook and try to warn them. They ignore the warning and improve the land only to find that it has been condemned for a new dam.
During the Great Depression, when natural catastrophes including floods destroy the homes of thousands,.crooked, con man Phineas Flagg buys up all the ranches in Arizona's Gunsmoke Valley at the bargain price of $2 per acre. The displaced families are only too happy to buy what Flagg misrepresents as 40 acres of prime farmland per family at the bargain price of $50 an acre. What he doesn't tell the migrants is that the entire area has been condemned under the law of eminent domain and will soon be flooded for the construction of a new dam. The group's leader, Judge Warren, initially disregards the Mesquiteers' warnings that they're being conned,, but Stony' romances his beautiful granddaughter Marion,, and the settlers accept the Mesquiteers' help,, but is it too late?Written by
1930s country comedian Lou Fulton plays a stutterer who is a source of distastefully uncomfortable amusement and ridicule, something that would not be politically correct today. His movie career was mercifully short. See more »

You want to be careful, Jimmy. Guns weren't made for youngsters to play with.

Gunsmoke Ranch was cute but only mildly entertaining
This was a cute movie - good for relaxing. Some of the comedy wasn't. It was like a bit of corn, so if you are hungry, watch this movie. If you want to relax - watch this movie. It was mildly humorous, but was interesting to watch the old time acting and their concepts of "acting." Today they would not cut it. I would say it is more of a novelty to watch to see differences in quality compared to today's movies. I watched this movie and saved it on PVR. Decided not worth keeping. Just a cute type of movie. located. Maybe we could move there.
Typical guy woos girl plot. Could use new plots, with shocker endings.
Nice background - I always watch the background. Nice scenery. The town (Set) was nice too. Looked like a nice place to live. But, sadly, there was no such place as Gunsmoke Valley. I googled it, that is how I found this movie title. Wish there was someone who knows where this movie was
