Overview

Gene Autry goes up against another "protection" racket in this tuneful series entry, which also features country & western singer Patsy Montana and the CBS-KMBC Texas Rangers. Doc Blair Robert Barrat, a crooked veterinarian, is doing a good business terrorizing the local dairy farmers into paying for not having their deliveries destroyed -- until, that is, Gene and Frog Millhouse Smiley Burnette move in. Blair, as it turns out, does not even shy away from murdering the local sheriff William Farnum and attempts to get his own stooge, Dave Haines Buster Crabbe, elected in his stead. But Gene takes up the fight and wins the election. Now he only has to win over Haines' innocent sister, radio announcer Carol Haines June Storey, whom Blair has used to relay coded messages to his henchmen over the air waves. Autry, Burnette, Patsy Montana, and the CBS-KMBC Texas Rangers perform "Colorado Sunset," "On the Merry Way Back Home," "I Want to Be a Cowboy's Sweetheart," "Poor Little Doggie," "Beautiful Isle of Somewhere" and "Seven Years with the Wrong Woman," all by Con Conrad and L. Wolfe Gilbert. The Gene Autry debut of producer William Berke, Colorado Sunset was filmed on location at Keen Camp near Hemet, CA.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
Gene Autry was at his very best in 1939, and Colorado Sunset brims with energy and good humor. The songs are fine and it is nice to see (and hear) the legendary Patsy Montana in action. But the film's biggest surprise is then-serial star "Buster" Crabbe as a bad guy. While he does redeem himself in the end but before reaching that foregone conclusion, Crabbe does his fair share of sneering. To add a bit of menace to his character, the former Flash Gordon added a dark mustache, which he all but twirls at times. Smiley Burnette, meanwhile, is fairly tolerable throughout, even for non-devotees, and June Storey, in her fourth of tenth appearances opposite Autry, is as charming as always. Only Barbara Pepper, brought in for no apparent reason, is left to fend for herself in a nothing part as the town's cafe operator and mild love interest for the tubby Burnette.
