Autry's westerns often had fantastic or topical story lines, and this is no exception. Failing in their attempt to purchase the ranchland that Autry straw-bosses, a gang of crooks secretly lays a pipeline to leach off the valuable helium gas which lies beneath its surface. (The German

dirigible "Hindenberg" which used inflammable hydrogen in its gas bags had burst into flames during its landing approach in New Jersey the previous year, causing interest in non-inflammable helium to jump sharply.) Autry discovers the pipeline and rounds up the gang. Variety artist Frisco, a

stuttering wonder, does well here. Autry manages to work in a few songs, including "November Moon."
