Rex Allen, aka "The Arizona Cowboy," again stars as himself in Republic's Silver City Bonanza. Allen and his sidekick Gabe Horne (Buddy Ebsen) are hot on the trail of a murderer who has stabbed a blind man to death. Their chief witness is the victim's seeing-eye dog, who is a better actor than some of the human players. The finale is an exciting underwater set-to between Allen and the killer (whose identity will remain hidden for the benefit of those who haven't seen the picture). The teaming of Rex Allen and Buddy Ebsen proved successful, and the two actors would remain saddle pals until Ebsen was spelled by Slim Pickens in 1952.
