Ride, Tenderfoot, Ride is a 1940 musical western directed by Frank McDonald starring the famous singing cowboy Gene Autry. Autry plays a shy cowboy who inherits the Belmont Meat Packing Company and realizes it is full of management headaches. A rival company owned by the socialite Ann Randolph (played by June Storey) tries to force Gene into selling his plant. A feud begins to brew between the two. Ann starts using her feminine wiles and Gene employs bands, parades, and, yes of course, his singing, in an attempt to save the meat packing plant. The supporting cast includes Joe Frisco, Warren Hull and, as always, Smiley Burnette. The film is light in tone and rather comedic. It seems almost a send-up of all of Gene Autry's other singing cowboy films.
