Cliff Edwards and His Buckaroos (1941)

** (out of 4)

Cliff Edwards, playing himself, is working on a dude ranch when word gets around that some rich women are about to pay a visit. The men clean the place up and await the big arrival but things aren't what they seem. I must admit that this film ended and I was sitting there wondering what had happened. The movie runs a brief 9-minutes but this thing was over before anything really happened. There's one minor twist in the film so I'm guessing this is all that was suppose to have been delivered. The movie itself isn't too bad as we get a couple quick music numbers including "I Can't Get Along Little Dogie", which is certainly the highlight of the film. Edwards comes off quite natural here and manages to be charming as he does his thing.
