Review by Hans J. Wollstein

A lovely brunette Republic contract player, Carol Adams gives Ann Miller a run for her money in two lively tap numbers in this melodious music western, which also benefits from good performances by the underestimated Byron Foulger, as a larcenous riverboat clown, and tough guy actors Ralf Harolde and Anthony Warde. If all four seem slightly anachronistic in what at least on the surface appear to be a western, well, that is the charm of this kind of hayseed movie fare, a genre that should always be viewed in a certain lighthearted and nostalgic frame of mind.
