The year 1942 was Gene's last year as the number one cowboy in
American, a rank he had held for almost a decade. When he went away to
war, Roy Rogers became the King of the Cowboys. Though Gene was able to
regain some of his popularity, especially on early television, he was
never again number one. "Call of the Canyon" was one of his last movies
before he left the screen to serve as a flier with the Air Transport
command during World War II. Also by 1942 music was beginning to play a
larger role in his films. The grand finale of "Call of the Canyon" is
more like a Hollywood musical extravaganza than the end of a western
where the cowboy rides off into the sunset. Unlike fellow singing
cowboy Roy Rogers, Gene put as much effort into his recordings as his
movies and sold millions. So music was always a key element in his
life. His sidekick and lifelong pal, Smiley Burnette, was also into
music and wrote over 400 songs, such as "Lazy Day" and "Ridin' Down The
Canyon." Even with the music, there is still plenty of action. It seems
a representative of the chief cattle buyer is shortchanging the
cattlemen, headed by Gene, to pay off his gambling debts. The chief
cattle buyer, Grantley B. Johnson (Thurston Hall) goes incognito as a
cattleman to find out why the ranchers are so disgruntled with his
prices. This leads to lots of action in trying to drive the cattle to
market for a fair price. When the representative Thomas McCoy (Edmund
MacDonald) uses explosives to stop the drive, one of the cattlemen is
killed. The film has a subplot about a local band trying to make it big
on the radio. The lead singer is known as Kit Carson (Ruth Terry) and
becomes unhappy when Gene gets more of the spotlight than she does.
Gene Autry westerns usually took place in the modern west, so airplanes
and other motor vehicles are usually seen. In "Call of the Canyon,"
radio is used to catch the bad guys.
Smiley is around for laughs. This time he has a young sidekick who had
appeared with him in earlier films, Tadpole Millhouse (Joe Strauch
Jr.). Tadpole looks, acts, and talks like Frog, who is not really his
father because Frog is supposed to be single, but more like a father
figure to the little tad. When the little tad is injured in the
explosion Frog sits up with him at the hospital. So the viewer knows
that the two are as close as father and son.
The legendary Sons of the Pioneers are around to help with the music.
They were at the top of their form in 1942 and add much to the musical
numbers in the film. One of their founding members, Leonard Slye, was
no longer with them for now he was Roy Rogers, a friendly rival to Gene
and his gang.
If you're a Gene Autry fan, get ready for action and music. You're sure
to enjoy "Call of the Canyon."
