The Silvery Voiced Buckaroo

Fred Scott was born on Valentine's Day 1902, and passed just before Christmas in 1991. Fred's singing voice got him into Vaudeville and a couple of motion pictures, and when the world became enamored of singing cowboys in the 1930's Fred Scott made a series of singing cowboy adventures including this one, where he plays the part of a famous opera star who owns a ranch. Fred Scott actually had a bit of fame as a baritone with the San Francisco Light Opera Company, but by 1942 Scott left the cowboy movie scene and became a California real estate agent. His singing cowboy career failed to bring him the stardom that others like Gene Autry and Roy Rogers claimed, and selling real estate seems to have been the passion he was searching for, because he later said that he had a deal with horses, "I don't get on them, and they don't sell real estate."

In this cowboy story, famous opera singer Barry Glendon has finished a successful opera season and is heading for his ranch for a vacation away from the big city. On the way to his Bar B ranch he meets a young lady and her sick brother who are also on their way to the Bar B. It seems that the girl and her brother spent their last penny on a deed to what she believed was the Bar B ranch, not knowing that they were conned by a couple of fortune hunting brothers. It doesn't take us long to know that the gleam in Fred Scott's eye means that one day when all the shooting and fighting is finished she will own the Bar B . . . as the lady of the house. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
