Southward Ho begins with Roy Rogers and Gabby Hayes of the Confederate Army in the last days of the Civil War robbing a Union Army Colonel played by Wade Boteler of a roast chicken and his pants for good measure. Hayes took a particular delight in lifting the latter. But then news of Appomattox comes and they have to go back to Texas and Gabby's ranch of which Roy is asked to be foreman.

But when they arrive back in Texas who do they find has bought a half interest in the ranch. You guessed it, none other than Boteler who has arrived with his pretty daughter Lynne Roberts.

Boteler is appointed military governor of the district and troops arrive to back up his rule. But Arthur Loft and his men aren't really troops, they're all cashiered from the army and just looking to grab before the real carpetbag rule gets going. Roy and Lynne counsel moderation, but neither the ranchers or Boteler are in a listening mood.

The version of Southward Ho I saw was an edited one and some crucial elements of the story were left out. Still this is not a bad Roy Rogers western. Hopefully though I doubt it we'll get a director's cut on this one.
