Storyline

Government agent Jim Galloway is sent undercover to investigate shifty businessman Louis Rankin for violations of the Neutrality Act, a law forbidding the exporting of troops and war materiel to foreign countries. After hiring on as Rankin's new take-charge foreman, matters become more complicated as Galloway learns that Rankin has used Rita, his vampish girl friend, to dupe the governor's son into becoming partners in Rankin's schemes, which Rankin could later use to blackmail the governor, should the need arise.

Thoroughly ordinary bill filler
14 October 2003 | by JohnSealSee all my reviews

George O'Brien stars as an undercover government agent trying to root out villain John Miljan's arms smuggling racket in this ridiculous RKO programmer. Made at a time when America was scrupulously trying to avoid taking sides in the European troubles of the late '30s, Border G-Men imagines a world where evil ranchers try to circumvent the Neutrality Act by shipping guns to an unnamed and unknown third party, apparently across the Mexican border. The only saving grace of this picture is the inclusion of a handful of western swing songs by Gene Autry.
