Synopsis

Co-starring Troop 13 of the Los Angeles District Boy Scouts of America, this Tex Ritter music Western opens with footage from the 1936 Boy Scout Jamboree held in Washington, D.C. The Boy Scouts helps G-man Tex Ritter catch a gang of train robbers headed by the ever present Charles King. At first displeased with the idea of having the Boy Scouts appear as crime fighters in a B-Western, scout officials changed their minds after the October 1937 Broadway opening of the film, praising instead the boys for playing "their parts like real showmen." Marjorie Reynolds, later a popular Paramount ingenue, played Ritter's romantic interest but is billed below his horse White Flash, while veteran slapstick comic Snub Pollard and child actor Tommy Bupp added extra appeal for a mostly juvenile target audience. The grownups, meanwhile, could enjoy Ritter's singing of his own Girl of the Prairie and Frank Sanucci's Headin' for My Texas Home. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
