| So who were the partners of the sunset then???
Jimmy Wakely was pretty darned good as singing cowboys went, though, truth be told, he was always more believable as one of the hero's warbling chums than as the main man himself.

Not to worry though, this one has 4 songs, some fist fights, plenty of chases and some moderate comedy from sidekick Dub "Cannonball" Taylor. There's also a better than usual plot courtesy of J. Benton Cheney - who wrote loads of episodes of The Cisco Kid amongst other things - and a genuinely intriguing performance by Christine Larsen as the wicked new wife of Jimmy's boss.

No Oscar nominations but a better than average outing for B western fans made even more enjoyable by the crisp print on the Monogram Cowboy Collection Volume 1.
