Movie Review by Derringer
July 8th, 2009

THE OLD WESTERN WAGON TRAIN

Released in 1951 - Arizona Cowboy, REX ALLEN (as himself), and his ever-faithful horse, KOKO (as himself), star in this enjoyable, modern-day Western from Republic Studios.

REX, as a singing cowpoke, agrees to sheperd an ornery group of Easterners along the same route taken ages ago as an actual Wagon Train. These cursin'n'cussin' travellers have got high-hopes of finding a fortune in gold that was apparently left behind by the original pilgrims.

But, something suspicious is-a brewing when REX finds his poor Uncle Bill murdered just before the trip begins to get underway.

Since the killer turns out to be someone that you're least likely to suspect, this Murder-Mystery/Western keeps the viewer guessing their true identity right up to the very end.

In between all of the rock'em-sock'em action - Cowboy REX ALLEN actually manages to sing a tune, or two, which he, himself, wrote.

UTAH WAGON TRAIN contains absolutely no romance, or 'hanky-panky' type stuff, whatsoever. This is one clean and wholesome Cowboy Flick.

REX ALLEN's sidekick is Snooper Trent, played by BUDDY EBSEN.
