I thought I had seen all the old classics but I just watched an old one named "Trooper Hook" with Joel McCrey and Barbara Stanwyck. Title song was sung by Tex Ritter. Not a bad movie. He palyed a 1SG 30 year cavalry veteran on the western frontier. For the time period he even wore the correct canvas ammo belt.

He was in more a proper uniform after that scene. Loved the title music.

A good classic in which they took the time to get some of the equipment right. And it had a great title song, but it`s one of the hardest movies to find on dvd.
