| Nice Universal "Shaky A" Western
Joel McCrea and his motherless son, Jimmy Hunt, head out to Colorado to buy a farm. They seem to be making a go of it, and things are good enough for McCrea to arrange to marry Barbara Hale, but then the crop fails. Miss Hale marries him anyway, but McCrea needs money. He hooks up with a couple of stagecoach robbers.

It's one of Universal's "shaky A" westerns, with George Sherman in charge of the shoot, and Maury Gertsman handling the cameras to show the Colorado Rockies in every handsome shot. Good story, too but I never saw a dog that clean.
