This modern-day western (by 1937 standards) features Autry as the hero who takes on a group of technologically advanced rustlers. Using airplanes, refrigerated trucks, and shortwave radios, the outlaws (led by Loft and Peters) nab cattle, slaughter them, and ship the beef off to market for

a good profit. Is it any wonder Autry sings "The West Ain't What It Used to Be?" Farnum, a former silent film star, calls in the singing cowpoke and his sidekick Burnette. Together they prove that horses and six-guns can get the best of bad guys any time. This is a good Autry western with plenty

of action and good pacing that gets the story told without any lapses in the plot. The songs are nicely integrated into the picture without stopping things cold. The title comes from the billing Republic Studios was using for Autry at the time. Songs include: "I Picked up the Trail When I Found

You," "Heebie, Jeebie Blues" (sung by Smiley Burnette), and "Defective Detective from Brooklyn" (sung by Burnette).

Coming Soon
