Veteran moviestar Jack Holt is such a good man that he wants to sell Christmastrees to everyone to no profit of his own - much to the dismay of businessman Aldridge (Emory Parnell), who wants to make Holt's trees part of his Christmastree empire to roll in a tidy little profit., and he sends his daughter Toby (Penny Edwards) to close a deal with Holt at whatever cost.

What neither Aldridge nor Toby know though is that Aldridge's foreman Mitch (Clifton Young) is already fighting the competition using sabotage, murder and every other trick in the book, with lawman Roy Rogers being hot on his trail but never being able to prove anything against him. Mitch however doesn't do that out of loyalty to his boss, he wants to collect the money for the trees himself then make good his escape.

Aldridge meanwhile has grown suspicious of his foreman and has joined his camp undercover as a worker - but is found out by Mitch and kept captive.

Things get out of hand when Mitch first tries to burn Holt's Christmastree warehouse down, and when all the trees are saved nevertheless, he scares off Holt's drivers that are supposed to bring the trees to ... wherever the trees have to be brought. However, Roy's little friend Sis (Carol Nugent) has found the solution, so she calls quite a number of Holt's friends, all Western stars in their own right (Rex Allen, Allan 'Rocky' Lane, Monte Hale, William Farnum, Tom Tyler, Ray 'Crash' Corrigan, Kermit Maynard, Tom Keene, George Chesebro), to help out, and they - as drivers - are able to ship the trees just in time, even if Mitch tries to burn the Red River Bridge.

In the finale, Mitch falls to his death off a dam after he and Roy Rogers had an extended fight, and as a result, old man Aldridge decides to join Jack Holt in his Christmastree business instead of competing him and Roy gets Aldridge's daughter Toby (he didn't get Dale Evans in this one because at the time she was pregnant with their daughter). And wouldn't you know it, at the end of the film it begins to snow and everybody breaks out into song ...

 

The castlist of this film alone might whet the appetite of every serious B-Western fan. The film attached to the cast however is much less mouthwatering, and incredibly childish, silly and cheesy story about something as trivial as Christmastrees ... come on !!! And that the cast of the film is divided into real badass meanies and too-good-to-be-true goodies makes the film all the more blunt. Plus the all-star cast (except for Jack Holt) has little more to do than to do a walk-on appearance (the only funny scene in this respect is the appearance of George Chesebro, with whom noone wants to shake hands because in his film he has always played a meanie).

This could have been good, but as it is, it's nothing more than childish kitsch (and not the good sort of childish kitsch).
