Storyline

Humiliated by her Aunt Hortense, Lettie Morgan runs away from home. Mixing with a troupe of show girls, led by Otto, she is mistaken for the expected leading lady and heads for California with their wagons. They miss the main wagon train and are attacked just as they cross the California border, but are rescued by Captain Tex Autry and his troop. Lettie believes Tex has been insolent for condemning the show troupe being on their own unprotected, and reports him to Colonel Seward at Fort Henry. Horses are stolen from the fort that night by renegades led by Buck LaCrosse and Utah Joe, and when Tex goes in pursuit, he is believed to be a traitor, captured and condemned to death. Judge Lane, in on the plot and hankering for Lettie, is asked by Lettie to intercede, but he double-crosses her. Aided by his pals, Frog and Buffalo, Tex escapes and takes after the wagon train with which Lettie and the troupe of show girls has gone. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Pretty good Autry -- as "Tex"
7 February 2019 | by corporalkoSee all my reviews

This is, I think, the only Gene Autry movie where he didn't use his real first name. He is "Tex Autry" in this one. Don't know whose idea that was, but it was never done again. The Singing Cowboy and his group spend a good part of the film fighting a fierce Indian tribe near a U.S. Cavalry fort, singing, and, for Tex, romancing a lovely leading lady, Ann Rutherford. She has come from back east, where the movie begins at a New York theater where we see part of a minstrel show. Some may find this distasteful in this politically correct age, but it didn't bother me a bit, as at the age of 9 I was privileged to see the last live minstrel show ever put on in my hometown. Anyway, there's a lot of good action in the film, and Gene Autry is starting to show acting talent that his critics always claimed he never had. Worth a view!
