THE KID FROM GOWER GULCH (1950)



KID FROM GOWER GULCH, THE

Synopsis

Spade Cooley is a singing-western movie star who can neither sing nor ride, but a rancher (Jack Baxley), believing that Spade is the real deal, bets 500 cattle that he can win a rodeo contest with Spade's help. Then Spade's stuntman/double (Bob Gilbert) pulls a double-cross and rides for the other side. The rancher's pretty daughter, Peggy (Wanda Cantlon), pleads with Spade to come through. Wanda Cantlon was Lucille Ball's double and stand-in for several years. The film also features the great Richard Farnswroth (as Cooley's actual riding double) and also stunt-greats Bob Woodward and Boyd Stockman. Filmed in 16mm.
