There's Autry Gold in the Movie
Fine Autry oater, with right mix of action and song. Foreman of ranch Gene has got to make sure his dead boss's wishes are carried out. Trouble is the estate goes to boss's city-fied daughter who's intent on marrying a fortune hunter. Worse, the no-goodnik has hooked up with local baddies. So Gene and Frog have got their hands full. Lots of scenic backdrop to the hard riding. Also, some well choreographed fist-fights. Then too, the storyline combines well with the rest of the matinée mix, always a challenge for these features. I really like the staging of the first rendition of Gold Mine…. It almost brought a tear to the eye of this old cynic. And look for a little gender-bending from the portly Ainsworth in her mannish outfits. Seems unusual for a matinée. I guess they figured kids wouldn't notice since she's supposed to be funny. Anyhow, it's a well-done hour from Republic Pictures who've decked Gene out in some of the spiffiest western outfits this side of Nashville.

An "8" on the Matinée Scale
