      Steve D A complete waste of time. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/05/24 Full Review kevin w Gene Autry in a dual role, one as a snobby Western cowboy actor, and the other as that actor's "regular guy" stuntman. Can the stuntman step from the shadows and become his own man? Or, as the film might more better be known as: Gene Autry rides a horse. Boring, unless you're a film history buff and simply like watching the old-timey stuff. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Light-hearted entertainment. One of thos that the viewer knows what will happen before it does, but enjoyably acted. Songs were very good. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Filmed on location at the Texas Centennial in Dallas, this "wild and wooly" musical Western is harmless escapist fun. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Minor B western, pleasant Gene Autry performance, nothing great here by any means. A few decent songs, low budget.
