      Springtime in the Rockies from 1937 is a movie I have heard about for a very long time, but believe it or not, even with its marvelous song, I have never seen it, until now.

      The song that is sung at the beginning is awesome. I love the harmony and beauty of it, and it leads to a terrific line that I expect I will long remember. The line is spoken by Gene Autry, character and actor (Autry


      usually played characters that had his real name of Gene Autry) and went something like, “It’s hard to sing and be mean at the same time.”

      I simply love the simplicity of that line and how it relates to violence. Kudos to whoever came up with it and included it in this motion picture.

      The interesting thing about Springtime in the Rockies is that it is a transitional film. This is not set back when only horses ruled the ...


      • day. There were plenty of motorcars as well. It felt very odd to see a posse on horseback ride into town and see cars everywhere. What a dichotomy of this transitional period.

        Basically, the plot of the movie has a new owner arriving to run the ranch where Autry is a foreman. She knows little of ranch life and early on, Autry plays a joke on her by allowing her and her friends to believe that an

        old shack is the main house.

        Finding out about this, the greedy villain offers to buy the place, knowing full well that the owner hasn’t a clue what reality is.

        There is plenty of action, on and off the horses, and there is a satisfactory amount of singing as well. Autry did have a very nice voice.

        Appearing in Springtime in the Rockies with Autry were Smiley Burnette as the sidekick and Polly Rowles as the naive new owner and love interest Sandra Knight.
