When I think of classic westerns, no Gene Autry flicks come to mind. But, when I think of western stars, he's among the FIRST to come to mind. So, it never surprises me when I give his films just mediocre marks. Such is my grade for this effort. It has what you'd expect in a Gene Autry movie: plenty of tunes (even a Hank Williams standard and a female singer/yodeler); a plot and action which seems somewhat contrived; and lots of Pat Buttram foolishness. Here we have pseudo-resigned cavalrymen Autry and Buttram planted in Arizona as start-up cattlemen. Actually, they're there to learn why Indian raids are occurring in an area where a no-raid treaty exists. Only SLIGHT bellicose Apache behavior is shown, however; and, it's clarified that THAT is encouraged by caucasians. As always, after enduring intrigue from many angles, Gene and Pat get the job done and the bad guys are quelled.
