The Singing Outlaw is a 1938 "B" movie directed by Joseph H. Lewis and starring Bob Baker as a singing cowboy.[1]


The film was the third that Lewis had directed, after Navy Spy (1937), which he co-directed with Crane Wilbur and Courage of the West.[2] This was the second of four films in which Fuzzy Knight played the comic sidekick to Universal's new singing cowboy, Bob Baker.[3]


A singing outlaw named Cueball and a U.S. Marshal kill each other in a shoot-out. A bystander (Baker) decides to take over the Marshall's identity.[4] To trap the local outlaw gang he pretends to be Cueball.[1] He finds himself struggling to stop the cattle rustlers and win the love of the daughter of a rancher (Joan Barclay).[4] Things get complicated when a sheriff captures him with the gang, and he nearly gets hanged before it is proved that he is not Cueball.[1]


A reviewer said, "The second of Baker's outings as a singing cowboy is notable for Miller's exceptional camera work and Lewis' emphatic direction."[5]
