Gold In Gold River
31 March 2020 | by frank4122See all my reviews

Great songs by Gene and Ole Frog and a couple of beauty salon beauties in Carol Hughes and Sally Payne provide some great tunes of their own. Autry doing his best to slow down the scoundrels, well played by Ivan Miller and Ed Cassidy grub stakes the patsies until he can figure out what to do. Stalwart performer for Republic, Earle Dwire and some good stunt work make Man From Music Mountain a memorable Autry film.
