Roy Rogers, in his first starring role, plays a cowboy who becomes a congressman to get federal aid for the drought in his home state. He fights a greedy water company and corrupt politicians along the way, sings plenty of songs and flirts with pretty Carol Hughes. More or less set the template for the hundred or so movies that would bring him unparalleled success for the next several decades.
