Colorado Serenade, directed by Robert Emmett Tansey, is a 1946 western musical. After a misunderstanding and a fight, singing cowboy Eddie Dean and Soapy Jones (Roscoe Ates) team up with Nevada (David Sharpe), a secret agent, to prevent an assassination attempt against Roy Hilton (Forrest Taylor), a circuit judge assigned to restore law and order in Rawhide City. The assassins, the boss of Rawhide City, Duke Dillon (Dennis Moore), and his gang of rough riding friends, steal gold from stagecoaches. The man behind the robberies is 'Dad' Dillon (Warner Richmond), a villain who Judge Hilton locked up over thirty years ago. When Dillon escaped from jail, however, he kidnapped Hilton's son, Duke, and raised him as his own. During the movie, Eddie Dean performs a range of songs including the traditional "Home on the Range," and his own songs "Western Lullaby," "Ridin' Down to Rawhide" and "Ridin' to the Top of the Mountain."
