| Gene has to deal with an awful mine owner and a bratty ranch owner.
When the story begins, Gene and Frog are out east to the city to retrieve Tom Bennett. It seems that Bennett's father owned a huge ranch....and now that he's died, Tom needs to return home to run things. But Tom is very impulsive and as bright as a tomato....and a particularly dumb tomato at that! So getting him to return isn't easy. And, once they are back west, Tom continues to be a dope...ultimately leading to serious consequences with the law.

What exactly does dopey Tom do? Well a nearby mine owner is poisoning the water supply and Gene is going about getting the courts involved to stop it. But dopey Tom has his men attack the mine...with dreadful consequences. This puts Gene in a tough spot...see the film and see what happens next.

The film is a decent Autry outing, but I can't understand why they made Frog so incredibly useless and stupid....much more so than usual. The same, also could be said for Tom! There also is the overused cliche of the woman who takes an instant dislike for Gene....for no clear reason! But on the plus side, it has better songs than usual, a lot of action and Duke is an interesting character...and on balance it's worth your time.
