Prairie Chickens (1943)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Third and final film in Hal Roach's series features Jimmy Rogers and Noah Beery, Jr. once again playing cowboys who get mistaken for a guest of honor and chaos follows. I've now watched all three in the series and I've also now seen four films from the short career of director Hal Roach, Jr. Needless to say, his directing style isn't worth a damn so it's rather sad his father hired him over D.W. Griffith for One Million B.C.. With that said, this third film is weak throughout with an incredibly boring screenplay that doesn't give the actors a thing to do. The final third of the film takes place in a haunted house setting and everything here falls flat on its face.
