| Better than average Autry vehicle showcases Mary Lee's talent
This isn't your typical Autry movie. This one focuses more on music, comedy, and characterization than on action. The storyline/plot is scant and only makes an occasional appearance to justify its existence; it's there mainly to provide a framework in which to fit everything else. The movie doesn't feature as much action as most of the other Autry offerings; it focuses more on entertainment.

The movie offers plenty of entertainment. There are healthy servings of several songs, the usual Smiley Burnette comedic relief, and even a tap sequence by the talented Carol Adams.

What sets this movie apart from the others is that Mary Lee is given more opportunity to showcase both her singing and acting talents, and she does well with those. If you're a Mary Lee fan, this is the movie you want to see.

This movie is shown occasionally on the Encore Western channel, and you can also find it on Netflix. It's a must-see for Autry fans.
