Curious as to what a cowboy film with crooner Vaughn Monroe might be like, I&#39;ve finally caught up with this. &quot;Singing Guns&quot;, made by Republic in 1950, features Monroe as outlaw Rhiannon, who hides out in the mountains with a stack of gold he&#39;s stolen a la Dick Turpin from stagecoaches.<br/><br/>Ward Bond is the local sheriff, Ella Raines is the sparky love interest, and Walter Brennan is the doctor cum preacher, always ready to save a soul. With a solid supporting cast and Trucolor, the film looks good, despite its tiny budget and Poverty Row production values.<br/><br/>I enjoyed this film. Ward Bond has to walk down a Wild West street in frillies, Vaughn gets to sing a few songs including &#39;Mule Train&#39;, there&#39;s some shooting, a few punches thrown, and a bit of drama. I&#39;d recommend it as a fairly strong B feature.

If you like good old fashioned westerns, you&#39;ll like this movie. It is a common story of guy goes bad for good reasons and how he gets back on the right side. Look at the credits for Director, Writer, Screenplay and the list of actors.Can&#39;t get much better. That whole list is in the &quot;A&quot; category. Even with Vaughn Monroe&#39;s lack of acting experience it is hard not to like him because of the good story line and the &quot;hero&quot; that he plays, a goodguy that is good at whatever he does and only does it when he has to. He is the type of guy that anyone would like to be like. He can fight, shoot, sing, play the piano and ends up with the good looking Ella Raines. What more could a guy ask for. Good Entertainment!

Along around 1950 Herbert J. Yates was starting to lose his bread and butter which were his B picture cowboy stars. The biggest of them was Roy Rogers and he was making noises about going into television as were the others. Yates never recognized that this was the coming trend, so he was looking for more cowboy stars, if they sung so much the better.<br/><br/>Vaughn Monroe was coming off a big hit with Ghost Riders In The Sky so he looked like a good bet. Yates even got him some A list support here with leading lady Ella Raines and Ward Bond as the sheriff and Walter Brennan as the town doctor.<br/><br/>Monroe plays the outlaw Rihannon who has a fabulous store of gold obtained from robbing gold shipments from a mining company who did him dirt and he&#39;s getting some literal and figurative payback. Bond trails him successfully, but when they shoot it out Bond is badly wounded. Instead of leaving him to die, Monroe takes him to Brennan and his life is saved. Also a heavy head of hair and beard is shaved off Monroe by Brennan leaving Monroe unrecognizable.<br/><br/>Raines is the local saloon owner and she like what she sees in Monroe. But she also likes money and all three of them have their interest in Monroe.<br/><br/>Singing Guns is a good western though it sure never created a demand for more westerns from Vaughn Monroe. The film even got an Oscar nomination for Best Song when Mule Train was nominated. A whole slew of artists recorded Mule Train back in 1950 and Frankie Laine had the big selling record. But Monroe&#39;s version is outstanding.<br/><br/>See if you think Vaughn Monroe could have made it as a western star.
