Singer-songwriter Art Jarrett was given a tryout as a singing cowboy in Grand National's Trigger Pals. His cohorts included Lee Powell, herein billed as Lee "Lone Ranger" Powell because of his recent starring stint in the same-named Republic Serial, and all-purpose comedy relief Al St. John. The villains are a band of rustlers headed by Harvey Kent (Ted Adams), who tries to pin the blame of a recent hijacking on hero Lucky Morgan (Jarrett). Even heroine Doris Allen (Dorothy Fay) believes that Lucky is the guilty party until he clears himself in a slam-bang finale. Though Trigger Pals was well produced, Art Jarrett looked ill at ease in the Wide Open Spaces, thus his first starring western was also his last.
