| not as good as other Dean works
Eddie Dean is the singing cowboy here, later in his film career; with Roscoe Ates, giving one of at least fifteen performances as Dean's sidekick, Soapy Jones. They wanna help a female rancher, who's herd is being rustled with, they learn, the input of an employee of the gal. The rustlers also kill several emissaries of - and make off with - a government payroll. The Tioga Kid fits in thusly: at the beginning of the movie, he's obviously responsible for a number of misdeeds. And, he looks just like Eddie! He becomes privy to the evildoings of the gang, and demands one-third of the haul just because of what he knows. The bad guys, however, turn on him, and he ends up helping Eddie. There are three songs in this short flick: I see Dean's "men" around during two of them; but I wonder if that's a chorus of horses at the outset? I like other Dean fare more.
