| Eddie Dean foils a silver scam ............
This 1948 film features the singing cowboy Eddie Dean in a tale of forgery, greed and avarice. Dean corrals a posse of towns-folk and goes after the deceiving buckaroos who have been ripping off his pals. With dogged determination, they fight it out with the shady outlaws.

Roscoe "Soapy" Ates had good chemistry with Dean in this film, but overall he was not a stand-out as a sidekick. Dean gets to warble a few cow tunes before he saves the day ........

Fans of the genre should enjoy the music & humor in this one, but nothing in the film is especially memorable.

Average programmer .....
