Lee Phelps has served his prison sentence and wants to go straight. However, the local bad men want him back in the fold. Only Jimmy Wakely and his sidekick, Dub Taylor are around to get him a job and prove that he is being framed.
It's the last year of singing-cowboy stardom for Jimmy Wakely, "The Bing Crosby of Country & Western Music." He came late the the movie genre. He entered movies in 1940 as a band member in various westerns, and got his starring break in 1944. After about 45 vehicles, he appeared in a few more in support and went back to musical work.
In this one, he has his usual director, the reliable Lambert Hillyer, whose western direction went back to William S. Hart features. The result is pleasant oater with some decent musical interludes.
