A young lad decides a life of an outlaw is more exciting than day to day living. Things become complicated when Gene tries to teach the boy a lesson. Instead they are confused for real outlaws by the local authorities and a life and death situation quickly develops.
Did You Know?
After a hold-up, Gene Autry chases one of the robbers out of town. The thief is wearing a white hat, but when Gene knocks him off his horse, he's wearing a black one. When Gene leaps down to punch his opponent, the man is again wearing a white hat. Gene hits the villain in the chin and his hat flies off, but in the next shot, the man is wearing his hat again. Another punch and the hat flies off, but in the next shot, the hat's back - securely on the bad guy's head. See more
