New York journalist Steve Blaine (Roy Rogers) travels to Cheyenne to
write an article on the ongoing war between cattlebaron Sam Drummond
(George Rosener) and an outlaw named Arpaho Brown ... and even on the way
there, Steve's train is held up by Arpaho Brown's men ... but were they
really Arpaho Brown's men.
Soon enough, Steve meets the real Arpaho Brown (Gabby Hayes) and
realizes that he and his so-called gang are indeed peaceful homesteaders
whose land Sam Drummond is after after he has already cut off their water
supply. But to really drive them away, Drummond has organized a gang of
outlaws to roam the land to pose as Arpaho and gang so that they are
eventually driven away (or worse) by an angry mob.
Of course, with the help of local newspaperman Casey (J.Farrell
MacDonald) and his daughter, Spanish dancer Dolores (Joan Woodbury), Steve
manages to uncover Drummond's plot, and in the end, Steve and Arpaho's men
manage to defeat Drummond and his gang, and naturally, Steve gets the girl
Mediocre B-Western. One can't say it's really bad, the plot is
interesting enough and Roy Rogers keeps his singing down to a minimum to
keep the story flowing, too, on the other hand, the film features but nothing
to impress or even remember in a few days time and all the action can be
seen better elsewhere. That's not to say In Old Cheyenne is a bad
movie as such, it's just not good either.
