Witnessing her boss Scarlotti (John Bradford) murder his business partner during a casino raid, showgirl Hope Manning escapes the big city head over heels & ends up in a small Western town, where people still lilve like in the Old West. To prove just that, the bus in which she arrives is robbed in true Western style - by Roy Rogers & the Sons of the Pioneers, who need some publicity to sell their records (they are singing cowboys you know). 

But luckily, sheriff Gene Autry (also a singing cowboy) was on the bus, & he, as the hero, has no problems to bring the boys behind bars. He also finds out soon enough that Manning is wanted as a murder witness, but still he helps her when she is starting a career as a nightclub singer at the local saloon. Soon though, Scarlotti & gang learn of the whereabouts of the girl, &, thinking themselves as big city thugs superior to Autry's hick sheriff, try to take her from under his nose. But Autry still has a thing or two to teach the gangsters, & finally - with the help of Roy Rogers & the Sons of the Pioneers, who Autry released from jail & deputized, & a cattle stampede - brings Scarlotti & gang safe behind bars.

Ed 'Oscar' Platt & Lou Fulton debut their shortlived comical roles as backwood yokels Oscar & Elmer here.

 

B-Westerns of the 30's were generally aimed for the whole family, but the Westerns of Gene Autry, while missing none of the action & shoot-outs,  were especially kids-oriented, with very simplistic plots, a hero that is less of a tough hombre & more of a likeable fellow, & sidekick Smiley Burnette is actually childish to the point of annoying. This movie here has some nice & unusual (for a Western) action - there are a cattle stampede and a car chase as integral elements of the plot -, but it's mainly interesting for having both Gene Autry - who - & Roy Rogers in the cast. Autry himself was back then relatively new to the business, having had his first starring role (in The Phantom Empire) just the year before, while Roy Rogers was still 2 years away from his own breakthrough (with Under Western Stars), making him the hottest singing cowboy of the movie business, besides Gene Autry. Both of them later had their own TV-shows in the 1950's. Lon Chaney jr by the way plays a small fry gangster in this one, being a few years away from his breakthrough performances in the Universal horrors.
