The story is not much, involving a spoiled rich girl who goes west to a dude ranch and is horse broken by Gene and his cowhands. Her father flies west to take his daughter away from what he considers to be a cruel, harsh environment only to rediscover himself and his daughter. In the meantime Gene has all kinds of trouble with an ornery galoot who once was the foreman.
Frog Millhouse is around for laughs as is his clone Tadpole. Tadpole looks and acts like a young Frog and is just about as humorless. This go around Frog does have a few funny lines to deliver. I'm not sure exactly what the relationship was supposed to be between Frog and Tad. Since Frog was unmarried, perhaps Tad was adopted or taken in by his older lookalike. They did relate well to each other on the screen but there's still not much to laugh about beyond their looks. Frog's real talents, his music and his songwriting, do get showcased and that's a plus for the movie.
Gene Autry fans should like this one, especially those who love his music. Others may find it a bit tedious.
