| One Of Gene Autry's Best
Although Guns and Guitars was of Gene Autry's earliest movies, it was also one of his best. This film laid the groundwork for how most of his movies were scripted. A combination of fists, gun play, and smarts were used to foil the villain. Unlike some of Autry's other movies, this one did not have any "idiot sidekick" moments. Smiley Burnette did have some humorous moments in the film, but nothing over the top. J.P. McGowan played a great villain as Morgan. Too bad, these two enormous talents, McGowan and Autry, didn't work together more often. The only negative for this movie was the bad editing in the main fight scene. Morgan amazingly goes from losing his hat to having it back on again and then surrendering to Autry with no gloves on and then having handcuffs put on him with his gloves back on again. Definitely, a must see.
