This is evidently taking place in the early 1850s, yet all handguns are revolvers, which weren't yet invented, and the cattle we see are Herefords. That breed wasn't introduced into North America until well after the Civil War. See more »

So-So Roy Rogers Vehicle
5 April 2010 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Roy works for an old-blood Spanish rancher in the early days of California's entry into the Union. He's fired when he takes the side of George "Gabby" Hayes and other settlers, when they're falsely accused of robbing a shipment of the Spaniard's gold, a robbery that's really the brainchild of the rancher's evil gringo-hating foreman.

A thoroughly ordinary Roy Rogers adventure, there isn't enough of the good stuff to make this very memorable. There's a few decent action scenes, but little twists, suspense, or humor. The songs are okay though.

Jack La Rue is a good villain, but Roy's love interest is rather bland and the usually animated Gabby Hayes is a bit more subdued and thus less interesting this time around.

I'd recommend this only to hardcore Rogers fans.
