Roy Rogers plays a rodeo performer-cum-government agent who is appointed by the governor (Russell Hicks) to discover who has been blasting military warehouses filled with the hardware needed to win WW II. The sabotage appears to be related to the presence of a traveling tent show, so Rogers

joins the show and discovers that the saboteurs receive their cryptic instructions through messages coded by the show's spiritualist, transmitted during performances. Rogers had recently been the subject of a cover story in the enormously popular Life magazine, which accorded him the appellation

"King of the Cowboys." Consequently, studio chiefs upped production budgets for Rogers' features following this aptly titled film. The tent-show setting affords ample opportunities for musical numbers from both the star and the Sons of the Pioneers, and the songs include "I'm an Old Cowhand," "Gay

Ranchero," "Roll Along Prairie Moon," and "Red River Valley."
