Tries Too Hard
Stu Erwin is the manager of a financially strapped Dude Ranch. Jack Oakie's acting troupe happens by, and they are in the same predicament. They agree to work for food, and stage a drama which is meant to be a real life drama for the clientele, who are bored due to lack of excitement. As the phony drama unfolds, the guests are spellbound and decide to stay for a while longer. At the same time a group of gangsters checks in. They are planning to rob a local bank but try to blend in with the guests.

Predictable hi-jinks ensue, all too tiresome to recount. The movie tries too hard to please, and so does Jack Oakie. The result is a painful comedy which is mercifully short at 71 minutes - but seems longer. It is staggering to see both Mankeiwicz brothers listed as writers for this picture. At best it is a harmless way to spend one's time, and it has its moments. A young June Collyer is the female lead and resembles Mary Astor. Played at Capitolfest, Rome, N.Y., 8/12/16.
