In this one, the hero is an investigator sent by the U.S. Army rather than the Texas Rangers, but the roots show quickly. During the Civil War, Union Army Lieutenant Steve Nolan (Tex Ritter) and Corporal Banjo Bonner (Fuzzy Knight) are assigned to trail and capture "El Vengador/The Avenger", outlaw leader whose band is stealing herds of wild horses before they can be delivered on contract to the Army. Disguised as an unshaven, seedy cowpuncher, Steve arrives in Benton, Oklahoma territory and witnesses the robbery of the post office by Duggan (Dick Alexander) and Higgins (I. Stanford Jolley), henchmen of Arnold Drew (Jack Ingram), who holds the contract to deliver the horses. Steve stops the two robbers but is wounded by the unseen Drew. The townspeople assume the unconscious Steve is part of the gang, and Judge Clem Masters (John Elliott) instructs a deputy (Ethan Laidlaw) to take Steve to the next town to have his head-wound treated. Drew orders Duggan and Higgins to ambush the wagon and kill Steve, but they shoot the deputy instead, and the team runs away with the helpless Steve. He is dumped over an ambankment just as Donna Ross (Jennifer Holt), Todd Wingate (Dennis Moore) and Boone Talbot (Stephen Keyes) arrive on the scene. Donna takes Steve to a hideout in the mountains, where she is revealed as El Vengador, leading a group of dispossed ranchers against Drew and land agent James Prescott (George Eldredge), who have illegaly taken over the rancher's lands, so they can take over the contract of furnishing the horses. Steve is nursed back to health by Donna and returns clean-shaven to Benton to gather evidence against the Drew/Prescott gang, but Donna and Todd think he is a spy that has betrayed them. Former Universal (1937-1939) western star Bob Baker is relagated to just a bit as a cowboy leaning against the saloon bar, and one of the lynch-mob leaders later on.

Carrie (Diana Barrymore), ambitious young actress and her manager Mike Kilinsky (Andy Devine), travel east from Chicago to Long Island so Carrie can see the new mansion that her mother Chris (Kay Francis) has just purchased. Chris is not there when Carrie arrives by Gallagher (Ethel Griffies), the family major domo, tells Carrie that Chris is in love with the very rich Steve (John Boles.) Chris confesses to Carrie that she has lied about her age to Steve, claiming to be 31, and that the photograph of Carrie is Carrie's (non-existent) Aunt Sadie and Carrie is only twelve. Carrie insists that her mother keep up the masquerade, and she will pose as a 12-year-old. Steve arrives and brings with him his friend Jimmy Blake (Robert Cummings). More than a little confusion follows including Carrie starting a fight with another "kid" to keep Jimmy from keeping a date with his fiancee and Mike escorting Chris and the "under-age" Carrie to a night club, and other incidents that only tend to prove that Steve and Jimmy aren't the brightest bulbs shining. Diana Barrymore is better as the 12-year-old than she is later playing Joan of Arc in a Detroit theatre, where the light finally dawns on the perplexed Robert Cummings character.

Wings over Honolulu (1937) as Sound
Adapted by Isabel Dawn and Boyce de Gaw from a "Redbook Magazine" story by Mildred Cram with, apparently, none of the three understanding much about military trials or else the Ray Milland character would have ended up with a dishonorable discharge and twenty years in the slammer. Story begins at a birthday party given for Virginia deb Lauralee Curtis (Wendy Barrie) by her adoring aunts Nellie (Margaret McWade) and Evie Curtis (Clara Blandick.) Wealthy yankee Gregory Chandler (Kent Taylor) claims the first dance and spends the night unfolding dazzling vistas of yachts, wealth and far-off romantic places and asks Lauralee to marry him. She declines, as properly brought-up southern girls do not accept first-night proposals or, most of the time, propositions. But this changes when navy flyers Lieutenants Stony Gilchrist (Ray Milland) and Jack Furness (William Gargan) make a forced landing on the Curtis plantation, and it is a case of love at first sight when Lauralee meets Stony,evidently because Lauralee and Stony are the only two people at the party with British accents. She marries him and follows him to Honolulu.But the Navy bungalow is a bit drab---"pitifully drab" to be exact---for a good old girl from a southern plantation, and she isn't too keen about airplanes flying over the house all day even if they are on a Naval base and, for goodness gracious sakes, ol' Stony's duties force him to stay away from home at times. Meanwhile, Gregory sails his yacht into the harbor with the express purpose of winning Lauralee away from Stony, which is not surprising for a damn yankee. She assures the cad that she loves her husband more than ever but...she will attend a party on his yacht since Stony is tied up doing whatever it is he does and a girl just can't stay cooped up all the time and she reckons there is nothing wrong in that. But Stony comes home early, finds out where she is going and reckons otherwise. They quarrel and Lauralee hies herself on to the party, which ends up on a slumming excursion to a disreputable cafe where a drunk makes a pass at Lauralee, and Gregory, miffed that someone other than he is out to spoil Lauralee's honor, fights the drunk. All three are hauled to jail and the story is all over Honolulu's morning newspapers. Grief-stricken and not wishing to bring further shame on Stony, Lauralee sends word she is leaving him for Gregory Chandler. Stony isn't buying any of that and he steals a Navy plane and goes in search of Chandler's yacht. To compound his theft of United States government property, Stony also manages to crash said property. He offers no defense at his court martial, since doing so would involve his wife's good (albeit somewhat tarnished) name. But Lauralee shows up and tells the court martial board it was all her fault, and the board reckons that under these circumstances Stony should be restored to full duty and rank but transferred to another base. In real life, of course, his next base would have been the federal prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas doing a hard-duty twenty years behind the bars.

I Cover the War (1937) as Sound
Bob Adams (John Wayne), ace newsreel cameraman, is told by his boss, "Get the picture---we can't screen alibis." He heads for Samari, a desert hot-bed of tribal unrest in Africa, to do just that, which includes getting footage of El Kadar (Charles Brokaw), bandit and rebel leader. He gets his pictures but only after a romance with the Colonel's daughter Pamela (Gwen Gaze), saving his wimpy, hacked-off brother Don (James Bush) from being a dupe of the gun-runners, and run-ins with spies and throat-cutting tribesman. For a finale, he saves the British Army. Made during the two-year period when Universal became "The NEW Universal" but still looked like the old Universal. FYI to source that thinks actor Jack Mack is the same actor as musician/western actor Taylor Curtis McPeters, AKA Cactus Mack; He ain't. Not even close.
