JOHNNY MACK BROWN WESTERNS SET #9



TENTING TONIGHT ON THE OLD CAMP GROUND



Like many of Johnny Mack Brown's western vehicles of the 1942-43 season, Tenting Tonight on the Old Camp Ground draws its title from a popular song. Brown plays Wade Benson, head of a road-building project in the wild frontier. In their efforts to sabotage Benson's efforts, the villains lure his workers into the raucous saloon owned by dance-hall girl Kay Randolph (Jennifer Holt). But when the baddies resort to murder, Kay aligns herself with Benson, saving the day for both the road project and an ancillary government mail contract. Since Johnny Mack Brown could hardly qualify as a singer (as his later attempts at carrying a tune in his Monogram films would prove), the film's title song is warbled by Jimmy Wakely.



CHEYENNE ROUNDUP



Johnny Mack Brown's Universal western series was drawing to a close when Cheyenne Roundup was released in mid-1943. Brown is herein cast in a dual role, as honest Gils Brandon and his less-than-honest brother Buck. Pursued by lawman Steve Rawlins (Tex Ritter), Buck tries to pass himself off as the upright Gils. But in the end, the good brother is forced to make the bad one pay the price for crime. Jennifer Holt, daughter of cowboy favorite Jack Holt, is the leading lady; Fuzzy Knight socks over his usual unsubtle comedy relief; and music is provided by The Jim Wakely Trio, soon to star in their own series of sagebrushers.



RAIDERS OF SAN JOAQUIN joined by Tex Ritter



In this western, two cowboys ride to the rescue of ranchers who are fighting to keep a land-grabber from taking their land and selling it to the railroad. Things look bleak for a while, but fortunately, one of the heroes is related to the vice--president of the railroad and is able to straighten the whole mess out.
