If TV was around in the 1930's that's what these Gene Autry movies would be, another weekly episode of the daring and crooning cowboy of the west. What makes these a fun hoot to watch is Autry's natural honestness no nonsense and common sense cowboy with a bizarre fashion taste. That he's surrounded with really good character actors. In this episode he unknowingly takes a contract singing for a Mexican radio station owner who is also a oil con man swindling the money and deeds from investors. It's up to Autry to save them ( and the orphanage), sing a few songs and rustle the bad guys.
Better than average Gene Autry western, the plot is actually pretty exciting and the supporting cast is terrific. Some action, suspense, music, comedy and drama.
