Dudes Are Pretty People (1942)
APPROVED · 43min · Short, Comedy, Romance · 13 March 1942
In the first of the Roach Studio western "Streamliners" (followed by "Calaboose" and "Prairie Chickens') wandering cowboys Jimmy and Pidge are introduced as none-too-bright sons of the sage, with Jimmy's role primarily to keep Pidge out of girl trouble. They are afoot, as Pidge had figured that two-pair in a poker game was worth betting their horses on. After a stint of rounding up wild Brahmas for rancher Cardigan with bad results, Pidge becomes smitten with a guest, Marcia at a neighboring dude ranch and takes a job there to be near her. Jimmy follows in order to "save" Pidge, with most of the last half of the film devoted to a skit where Jimmy has blacked out the windows in the bunkhouse in order to make Pidge think it is still night to cause him to stand-up Marcia.
