San Antonio television
23 November 2008 | by jmbaylissSee all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie on San Antonio television back in the 1960s. I was particularly interested because my older sister went to Jefferson. As others have said, this is definitely a "B" movie. I think the director missed an opportunity to put in more quality trick roping as trick roper Sam Garrett was an uncredited member of the cast and taught Jane Withers the body loop she does in the beginning of the movie. To anyone interested in Sam Garrett's work with actresses, I'd recommend going to YouTube and viewing Eleanor Powell's western rope dance in "I Dood It". Another person of interest in this movie is Cliff Edwards (aka Ukelele Ike), who plays Jeff. He had a successful recording and "B" movie career in the 1920s through 1940s, was the voice of Jiminy Cricket in the Disney production Pinocchio (1940), and died penniless in 1971. "High School" can be obtained from Ashfault's Classic Movies (on the web).
