The musical sequences are pleasant and well staged, enhanced by some good singing and dancing, and there is enough action to satisfy those who like excitement in their westerns.

Rogers acts and sings in his usually accomplished style, and Evans makes a decorative addition to the film with her fine singing and dancing, while Bob Nolan and the Sons of the Pioneers do well with their numbers. Rest of the cast is competent.
