Introduction:

Neither Ken nor Karl acted in the movie but they did the pre-recordings of the songs. Karl Farr recorded “The Everlasting Hills of Oklahoma” with the Sons of the Pioneers for recording but Doye O’Dell took his place in the film. Also, Ken Carson prerecorded Cowboy Ham and Eggs with the Pioneers but Lloyd Perryman and Pat Brady had returned from the war and were in the film.  When you watch the movie, look at Pat as he is miming "Cowboy Ham and Eggs" to Ken Carson's voice.
