Cal Brent: Well, Mr. Morgan, we're buyin' chips in this game, whatever it is. I'd like to tie up with some outfit... that is, if you can use a couple of riders.
Ranch hand: If we've got a range war on our hands, we want operators who can throw lead, not mounted canaries.

Typical singing cowboy movie
25 November 2004 | by dvdjunkie04See all my reviews

Fred Scott is billed along with Al "Fuzzy" St. John in this early oater about a banker who wants to steal a ranch for the water and ends up killing the owner in front of his son. Fred and Fuzzy happen along to break up the take over and end up getting framed for poisoning the water on the range. They escape jail and find it pretty hard to defend themselves without guns. This film moves along at nifty pace, and the songs are mostly at the front of the movie. The acting is a little cheesy and the sound effects ever more so. Fred Scott made about a dozen or so westerns and was even featured in the "Flash Gordon" serials. Not much of a singer, but I found "The Roaming Cowboy" just a plain fun movie to watch.
