Low-key fun on the range
3 June 2002 | by Sleepy-17See all my reviews

Not much of a plot and no suspense, but a genial western with an all-Black cast. Great vaudeville comedy about a talking mule fills in the gaps between a few standard shoot-em-up scenes. Bizarre and wonderful scenes in a bar-room when the entire cast bursts into song. Very inexpensive with wildly uneven acting styles and strangely-staged fist-fights. Amusing but insignificant except as an introduction to suave Black cowboy Herb Jeffries.
