| Great Songs Make Up For Thin Story
Big time horse thieves manipulate Tex and his partner Hank into transporting stolen horses across the border where they plan to kill them.

Tex Ritter was a great singer and one of the most likable of all the B-western stars. Here his charismatic charm and singing ability makes up for the lack of action or suspense in the first two-thirds of the film.

An abundance of lively music, including Tex's memorable rendition of "Blood On The Saddle" and an appearance by western singer (and writer of "Back In The Saddle Again") Ray Whitley and The Range Busters, make the slow parts worth watching despite the thin plot. It all really helps elevate this to the level of an above average singing cowboy picture.

The neat climax is worth waiting around for.
