Pleasant low-budget western fare ......
23 June 2006 | by revdrcacSee all my reviews

Jimmy Wakely was a cowboy crooner that was promoted to his own series. He co-stars here with the busy comic sidekick Dub "Cannonball" Taylor (Was he in EVERY western ever made ????). This was a fun movie, but had no really memorable moments.

The budget and action here are average, but the film is notable for its cast, which included a young Polly Bergen, who remains active in the industry today. The songs are fun, but routine.......

Wakely was never a box-office champ, but he did have decent run and even got his own comic book series ! This film was typical of those 1940's films that padded the matinée schedules of the day ...
