      After watching a bunch of old westerns with Tex Ritter, it’s actually quite a change to now watching a few with Gene Autry in them. They are both singing cowboys, but they are very different, too. This movie is called Round-Up Time in Texas from 1937.

      First of all, there was a very nice ensemble song to open the movie. It was like a choir coming through in sections,

      each new view bringing in different voices. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

      My attention, though, perked with Gene’s sidekick, Frog (Smiley Burnette), did a magic trick that mentioned my hometown. That really woke me up, so to speak.

      After that, Gene received a letter from his brother, Tex. Now that was an original name, not, especially considering that Tex Ritter had come onto the scene the year before.

      • Regardless, Tex Autry was played by Ken Cooper.

        What really made me chuckle though was to think about the name of this film. It is actually an odd name for a movie that takes place mostly in Dunbar, South Africa.

        The action is there, but it is mainly over a diamond mine that Tex has discovered. Horses are involved, but cattle are relegated to ‘also ran’ in Texas.

        There’s a ton of

        music in this, and I actually enjoyed just about all of it. Not all were as superb as the opening number was to me, but I was swinging to the chorus most of the time.

        For the most part, the movie was entertaining, and I enjoyed it. It was a change of pace over the normal cowboy adventure, and Autry does know how to sing a song the cowboy way.
