Overview

Gene Autry goes undercover once again in this rather pedestrian western from Columbia Pictures. Suspecting jailed youth Dave Weldon (Dick Jones) of complicity in an army payroll heist, special investigator Autry has himself jailed. He quickly discovers that there is more to the case than meets the eye and helps Dave escape and rejoin his father's medicine show, which also includes Dave's sister Connie (Gail Davis) and the singing Cass Country Boys. Meanwhile, nasty Mike McClure (Henry Rowlands and his crew are also after the stolen money and to save young Dave's life, Gene convinces him to turn the loot over to Marshal Taplan (Gordon Jones). Among other selections, Autry and the Cass County Boys perform yet another version of Gene's signature tune, "Back in the Saddle Again."

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
In addition to his busy television schedule, Gene Autry made no less than six feature westerns for Columbia in 1952 and the strain is visible in Wagon Team, which relies heavily on stock footage from earlier series entries. Happily, some of the era's best villains are around as well, including George J. Lewis, John Cason and Pierce Lyden, and the action is plentiful. If everything seems mighty familiar, blame should mostly go to screenwriter Gerald Geraghty, whose back of tricks dated back to the dawn of sound.
