Radio comedy. By Andrew J. Fenady and Duke Fenady. Based on the novella by Andrew J. Fenady.
Cast: 8m., 6w. (As in the good old radio days, an actor may play several parts.) With songs and smoking six-shooters, we're here to tell the adventures and misadventures of two cattle barons and, most especially, of a beautiful young lady in search of … well, not the usual kind of gold in them thar hills. Is this a musical? Nope. But somewhat like Cat Ballou, Paint Your Wagon and a lot of John Ford westerns, it has words and music that made their way west—songs like "Shenandoah," "Oh My Darling, Clementine," and "Sweet Betsy From Pike." And what's a rousing, sometimes rowdy western without a long-legged, curvaceous but vestal saloon gal? A saucy little filly known as Lily—with a more-than-middling singing voice to boot. A comic valentine to the cowboy and cowgirl heroes of bygone screen, radio and television—Gene, Roy, Hoppy, Coop, The Duke—with a tip of the Stetson to Calamity, Annie O, Belle Star and Cat Ballou. A story of the Old West, but a different sort of a story. A tale with a twist. A rootin', tootin', six-shootin' wing-ding of a western. One set. Approximate running time: 80 minutes.
