Synopsis: Bank robbery pulled off by the bank officials, not the usual James gang. Songs include “Echo Mountain,” “I’m a Son of a Cowboy,” and “Saddle Your Dreams.”

Director: Joseph Kane

Writers: Earle Snell (screenplay), Jack Natteford (story)

Stars: Roy RogersGeorge ‘Gabby’ Hayes and Don ‘Red’ Barry

Serious Jest:  (Don’t Bother)  This movie was designed to make men want to be Rogers and Barry (who played Jesse James), and women swoon over them.  The numerous camera shots of them in tight jeans and smiling into the camera were a 1930s marketing dream.  Nowadays, many would gag at this sort of thing, but at least the film had a decent plot, story, and cast…I wouldn’t recommend as more than background, though.
