The free grazing land that the local ranchers have used for years is about to be sold to John R. Ramsey (George Meeker), a greedy, grasping cattle broker. Gene Autry (Gene Autry), as foreman of the Circle R Ranch and head of the Cattleman's Association, tries to make Jo Adams (Virginia Dale), the youthful owner of the ranch, understand that the future of all the ranchers hinges on the sale of her property. But Jo, a frivolous, extravagant heiress to whom sentiment means little, stubbornly refuses to stop the sale. Gene goes to court and has Jo declared incompetent and has himself appointed her guardian. Ramsey has already made a $25,000 down payment to clinch his option to buy within sixty days, and Jo has already spent the money on the debts she owed.

Excellent Autry Movie
20 June 2006 | by timbertrail4444See all my reviews

I love this movie. It has action, good songs, attractive actors and a good chase scene at the end with the special Republic chase music that was composed especially for the Gene Autry movies. Gene was at his best during the 1938-1942 period of his career and the movies show it. He had Smiley Burnette, June Story, Fay McKenzie, Mary Lee and good songs, nice stories and great scenery. The action was very well done, stories moved along and everyone seemed to be enjoying making these nice and enjoyable movies during this period. The Western Channel recently showed these movies in the uncut format and what a difference. Also the Autry Museum has them for sale in DVD and uncut. It is well worth it to see the full length versions.
