Listen to the score!`
When you get the chance, view this compact little western with an ear tuned to the music score. It was written by Ferde Grofe, one of America's best known 20th century composers. Written in the same year as his score for ROCKETSHIP XM, this score is not nearly so well-known, but it has merit on its own. Each character has a musical theme, and Sue Younger's melody (Ann Dvorak) couldn't be nicer and more appropriate.
