Roy Rogers and his pal Frog Millhouse (Smiley Burnette) are stars of the rodeo, but since it's World War two and a series of Axis terror acts are shattering the American defense efforts, the Texas Gouvernor (Russell Hicks) asks them both to investigate ... and before you know it, they hook up with a travelling show that seem to be in town everytime something by the saboteurs is blown up. Soon enough, Roy finds out that the saboteurs are the show's owner Dave (James Bush) and mindreader Maurice the Mental Marvel (Gerald Mohr), who even use the latter's mindreading routine to exchange messages with Axis headquarters.

But before Roy can make any use of this knowledge, he is knocked out, Dave, who wants to leave the saboteurs is killed, the blame is put on Roy, and the gouvernor's car is blown up and it's not sure if he will pull through. But of course, Frog and two girls from the show (Peggy Moran, Dorothea Kent) Roy and Frog have become friendly with break him out, and ultimately Roy and company uncover a plot to blow up a railroad bridge while an arms shipment is rolling over it, and in the very last minute, Roy, at risk of his own life, diffuses the bomb and the baddies are overcome by Roy's Sons of the Pioneers, who are of course always there to help. And in the end, the gouvernor's own private assistant (Lloyd Corrigan) is identified as the head of the saboteurs.

 

So-so Roy Rogers Western that, being set in the 1940's and intended as a propaganda effort, features little in terms of Western genre elements and more elements fitting to an espionage film like mini radios, car chases, and time bombs. Only at the very end, the film presents us with a good old-fashioned shoot-out. Of course, this all makes the film sound more fun than it actually is ...
