TENNESSEE’S PARTNER-a Good Old West Western Starring Ronald Reagan and John Payne

I really enjoyed this Movie. And it’s a good Old West Western where you got good guys and Bad guys. And one Guy rakes the time to keep his friend from marrying a Golddigger. It’s a great Movie to watch. So, pop some Popcorn and sit back and enjoy another old West Western frim Hollywood.

A debonair gambler, Tennessee (John Payne), gets into some trouble in the rough-and-tumble mining town of Sandy Bar, Calif., and it takes the bold action of Cowpoke (Ronald Reagan) to get him out of it. Grateful for Cowpoke’s intrusion, Tennessee does him a huge favor and informs Cowpoke that his fiancée, Goldie (Coleen Gray), is a dastardly gold digger. Cowpoke isn’t pleased with Tennessee’s news and they fight. But Cowpoke comes to the gambler’s aid just when Tennessee needs him the most.
