Roy's Done Better., 17 May 2010
Author: FightingWesterner from The Lonesome Prairie

Roy Rogers and his partner face financial ruin when the local cattlemen's association discovers the partner's former ties with the ruthless cattle rustler that's been working the area. Roy decides to clear the old man's name by taking the rustlers on.

Everything about this early Roy Rogers vehicle is fairly undistinguished, with the exception of a few good songs, including the great title number and the presence of Roy himself, who's still as likable as always. The rest is just too stiff and talky.

Leading lady Mary Hart is quite beautiful. Unfortunately, she isn't given anything to do here, except stand around the ranch house and fret.
