Description by OLDIES.com:
Genial singing cowboy Fred Scott appeared in twenty-four films from 1926 to 1942. After he retired from his Hollywood film career, Scott's exceptional singing ability landed him the job of resident baritone with the San Francisco Opera Company.
Starring Fred Scott, John Merton, Claire Rochelle; Directed by Bernard B. Ray.
Songs And Saddles (1938, B&W): Crooked banker George Morrow leads a criminal conspiracy to sieze control of Pop Turner's ranch. Pop is unaware that a highway is slated to run through his property, and Morrow orders his men to kill the rancher before he finds out about the construction. Ambushed and left for dead, Pop must seek protection from his adopted son, radio star Gene Austin. With most of the town on Morrow's payroll, Austin's hopes of helping the man who raised him look mighty slim.
Accompanying himself on piano rather than the usual guitar, Gene Austin wasn't a typical cowboy crooner. In addition to his western work, he also appeared in W.C. Fields' 1940 hit, My Little Chickadee.
Starring Gene Austin, Karl Hackett, John Merton; Directed by Harry L. Fraser.
SONGS AND SADDLES: Singer Gene Austin made one Western, intended to cash in on his nominal similarity to Gene Autry. The video master was made from an exceptionally rare film print, perhaps the only one in existence.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 2 ratings.
This is worthwhile only if you like radio singer Gene Austin in his one starring role. His movie is a good quality, complete version.
Unfortunately, the Fred Scott film, featured on the DVD, is probably the worst of Alpha's series of Scott movies, running only 48 (of the orignal 56) minutes, and badly scratched & jumpy.
