I doubt if Grand National's bankruptcy actually killed Fletcher's career.
31 October 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

In the 1930s, Tex Fletcher made two films. The first was a short and the second was this film, "Six-Gun Rhythm". While other films were planned, only this one feature was made since Grand National went bankrupt--and Fletcher took it upon himself to cross the nation promoting this film. It was to no avail, as no other film offers resulted and the singer ended up fading into oblivion. However, after seeing the film, I wonder if the bankruptcy really had that much effect on Fletcher, as the film wasn't very good nor was Fletcher. The bottom line is that the film had all the usual B-western clichés, very pedestrian writing at best, little in the way of action and a relatively dull leading man. So, it really had nothing to distinguish it from the vast hoard of other sub- par films in the genre from that time. Worth seeing if you insist on seeing every cowboy film ever made, otherwise easy to skip.
