Did you notice something odd in that opening scene in the shop of the Galveston Sentinel? Right after Pat's trousers get caught on the tray of newspaper type to send it all careening, Pat's face is shown with a face full of printer's ink. Nicely done for comic effect, but the way the scene plays out, that would never have happened. The other somewhat 'messy' scene had to do with Pat commenting on young Cathy's (Judy Nugent) washing some clothes - he couldn't have been more chauvinistic in expressing that that's one of the reasons to keep women around.
Gene has his share of singing chores in this story, showcasing such Texas themed songs as "A Heart As Big As Texas" and "Eyes of Texas". I didn't realize that the melody to the latter tune actually had words, recalling it mainly as the theme song bookending episodes of the classic TV Western series, "Tales of the Texas Rangers". Seems to me that the song for that show had a different set of lyrics specifically written for it.
Fine supporting cast in this one, with Thurston Hall as newspaperman Colonel Bellamy, and Virginia Huston as his daughter Ann. Judy Nugent is called upon to witness the murder of her father to set up part of the plot whereby she's taken in by the Bellamy's, as Gene and Pat serve as her surrogate uncles. As Cathy Evans, she's got quite a lot to do actually, including a climb up the chimney escape to make the save for the good guys. Gene Autry was a Texan first, last, and always. The singing telegrapher from Tioga, Texas was certainly steeped in the traditions of his home state and one of those traditions was the corruption of the Texas State Police that was founded during the Reconstruction post Civil War era. When carpetbag rule ended the State Police were put out of business and the Texas Rangers reconstituted.
These guys were not boy scouts and they had their share of corruption. But what you won't see in Night Stage To Galveston is the fact that the real objection to the Texas State Police was that they hired black officers. But what we see here is the mythology that Texans of Autry's generation grew up with.
Gene Autry and Pat Buttram are a pair of ex-Rangers who are aligned with crusading editor and former Confederate Colonel Thurston Hall to expose the State Police. Here the police are headed by former cowboy hero Robert Livingston and he's a ruthless sort. Young Judy Nugent is a juvenile whose father was killed by Livingston's storm troopers and she's taken in by Hall and his daughter Virgina Huston. Nugent's scenes with Hall are kind of cute.
This is a decent enough Gene Autry western, but it is hardly telling the real story.
