Storyline

In a typical western (movie) town (possibly described as 'hick' by someone who possibly hasn't seen the film) Gene Autry and his friend Jack Beaumont are present when the bank is robbed and Sheriff Whiteside is killed. Judge Beaumont, Jack's father, appoints Gene the new sheriff. When Jack learns that his father is making a new will in his disfavor, they quarrel and Jack leaves under suspicious circumstances. Rocky Morgan who has been swindling the judge murders him and Gene has to jail his friend, who thinks Gene is double crossing him. But Gene has a plan to clear Jack. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Wanted anyplace? No, but there's plenty of places I ain't wanted.

How many movies can you find Gene Autry, Wyatt Earp, Mr. Haney from Green Acres, and Miss America? The sheriff (Harry Harvey) is killed in a bank robbery but the action really starts when Hugh O'Brian is framed for the murder of the judge (Roy Gordon). The top beauty and talent in America, Jo-Carroll Dennison is stuck between her uncle (Don Beddoe) and Autry. Younger brother (Don Reynolds) and villain James Millican, play their parts well as turncoats against Sheriff Gene. Kermit Maynard, Sandy Sanders and the stunt crew were extraordinary. Then there's the most beloved man in television history, Pat Buttram as Autry's sidekick with the outstanding comic relief.
