| Uncle Matt on the riverboat
Even with the death of Lupe Velez and the Mexican Spitfire series, RKO wasn't going to let Leon Errol's character Uncle Matt Lindsey perish with the series. In Riverboat Rhythm, Uncle Matt is now the proprietor of a show boat, but he's been up against it with a series of bad business decisions.

Trying to avoid the sheriff Errol uses a bit of stage makeup and costume and he becomes Colonel Witherspoon who is played by Walter Catlett. But Errol doesn't know that Catlett is the target of another southern family the Beelers who have vowed to shoot him on sight for trifling with the affections of their sister. The Colonel actually married the sisters, but the Beeler clan practiced its own brand of annulment.

With Errol switching identities back and forth the whole thing becomes a Mexican Spitfire film without Lupe Velez. With same frantic pace except when Frankie Carle is playing the piano.

If you liked the Mexican Spitfire movies, you'll like this.
