Bob Baker, Universal's entry in the singing cowboy sweepstakes, had not yet established a fan base when the studio hedged its bets by cutting the budgets for his pictures. Newly minted director George Waggner, working closely with co-writer Norton S. Parker, held expenditures to a minimum by having the entire story take place outdoors, saving the costs associated with set construction, interior lighting, and studio overhead. His handling of an unusually strong script - rich in characterization and dramatic situations - made Western Trails a success and helped bolster Baker's career. - Ed Hulse

Bob Baker sang as good as Gene and Roy and this movie exemplifies that fact. I enjoyed Bob and his horse Apache in this great B-Western. Check it out.
