| Good Debut Performance By Tex Ritter
This first film by Tex sets the template for further Ritter adventures, with the easygoing Tex, who's as quick with a song as he is with his six-shooters, a government agent who goes undercover to bust a gang of bad guys while still finding time for romance.

Tex is great as usual, rising above the okay but unspectacular material, while singing some fantastic songs.

There's some nicely photographed, atmospheric scenes early on, as a bearded Ritter, trying to sure up his outlaw credentials, takes refuge from a posse in the house of the gang leader, during a violent thunderstorm.

The highlight of the film definitely has to be Tex's spirited rendition of Jack 'o Diamonds (a.k.a. Rye Whiskey).

Leading lady Joan Woodbury looks very nice too.
