Sandwiched in between the numerous musical numbers, the Gabby Whittaker and Madden rodeo's are competing for bookings. When Gabby gets a date in Albuquerque, Madden has his man destroy his equipment. Roy finds a broken rawhide rope at the scene and uses it to bring Madden to justice.Written by

During the scene where Gabby tells Marjorie he has hired Roy and the Pioneers, she tucks the collar of her dress inside the neckline. But when he leads her out to show her Trigger, her collar is back outside again. See more »
"Gabby Whittaker" (George 'Gabby' Hayes) is the manager of the Brooks Rodeo Show which has steadily been losing money due to his inability to keep up with current trends. He has also kept the owner, "Marjorie Brooks" (Dale Evans) completely in the dark so as not to worry her. In the meantime, their main rival, the Madden Rodeo Show, has a more modern look and as a result has since overtaken them. And the owner of that particular outfit, "Frank Madden" (Tom Keene) is willing to do whatever it takes to either acquire the Brooks Rodeo Show or run them out of business. But just as things begin to look bleak a cowboy named "Roy Rogers" (Roy Rogers) comes driving into town with several of his friends known as the Sons of the Pioneers which Gabby immediately recognizes as the answer to all of his problems. Unfortunately, so does Frank Madden. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was a decent, old-fashioned type of Musical-Western which definitely personified the time. And because it is so dated there is a possibility that some viewers may not like or appreciate it. Again, it's a product of its time. That being said, I found it to be good enough for a rainy day and I have rated it accordingly. Average.
