Storyline

As Sheriff Seth (Samuel S. Hinds) is about to arrest gang leader Squint (Joe Sawyer) for murder, he is wounded by one of Squint's many henchmen. He asks his deputy, Fuzzy (Fuzzy Knight), to send for his son Butch (Walter Sande), who he has not seen since childhood. But Butch has sent Seth a picture of his pal radio-singing star Bob Richards (Bob Crosby) in a cowboy outfit, as himself. When Butch becomes ill, he asks Bob to pose as him. Seth makes Bob a Deputy Sheriff of Elbow Bend, and Bob agrees as he has fallen for Butch's sister Caroline (Fay McKenzie). Oops. Lawyer Vance (Edward Norris) is courting Caroline and this irritates Bob, who is not her brother but she thinks he is. More oops. Bob gives Squint and his gang twenty-four hours to get out of Elbow Bend. Squint makes an attempt on Bob's life and he decides he himself better get out of town before he gets killed. Squint and his hirelings are robbing the bus station when Bob arrives and he accidentally foils the robbery, and ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Amiably daft spoof western
9 August 1998 | by RobWSee all my reviews

Amiably daft B-feature with Bob Crosby as a singer going out west to act as the sheriff of a cowboy town where he unwillingly has a run-in with a gang of local desperadoes and succeeds in bringing them to justice. The "plot" is mainly an excuse for Bob to sing every now and then (which he does rather better than brother Bing)
