Roy Don't Partner With Crooks
23 May 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Shine On Harvest Moon, the popular standard made famous by Nora Bayes in vaudeville and the stage, serves as the title song for this early Roy Rogers western. In this film Roy and William Farnum are partners in a ranch in Wyomng that's been having hard times. They've got no cattle of their own, they're just renting out their land for other herds to feed on at the moment.

Farnum has a former partner played by Stanley Andrews who turned bad. Andrews plays Ed Jackson who has a pair of what look like inbred sons and has a valley hideout he calls the 'hole'.

Somebody's giving Andrews some inside information enabling his rustling operation to be always a step ahead of the law. Suspicion falls on Farnum. But you know Roy Rogers wouldn't partner with a crook, so he does some investigating on his home. Roy's spurred on by the fact that Farnum has pretty Lynne Roberts as a daughter who Roy kind of likes.

Shine On Harvest Moon is a pretty good B western, one of Roy's better early ones. And it was nice learning that Shine On Harvest Moon is also identified with another popular performer besides Nora Bayes.

And because I got curious I looked up Jackson Hole, Wyoming and no the area was not named for a famous outlaw hideout.
