In the 1930s, Gene Austin was a reasonably popular radio cowboy known for his crooning. However, his attempt to become a film star resulted in only a few films and few today would even recognize his name.

On the film's behalf, I must be honest and say that the version I downloaded from archive.org was clipped. In other words, during the early days of TV, stations would often cut portions of the films to make them fit a one hour time slot (along with commercials). This one is slightly clipped and perhaps it might have been marginally better in its original form...marginally.

The plot involves the usual--baddies who want to cheat westerners out of their land. The nasty banker and his henchmen trying to cheat honest land owners must have resonated well because of the Depression. However, the total effort is listless and not particularly good. And, perhaps my score of 3 is a bit overly generous at that!
