Roy Takes On The Bulls And Bears
21 May 2008 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Roy Rogers got in more of an eastern than a western when he became a Wall Street Cowboy. The villains in this horse opera are not just located in Apache Junction where Roy has his ranch, but in the very canyons of the financial district.

It's also where Roy hopes to find salvation. There's some skullduggery afoot as the banker/villain so popular in the Thirties wants to foreclose on the mortgage on Roy's Circle R. He's got good reason to want that real estate.

Roy's two sidekicks, Gabby Hayes and Raymond Hatton, think they've found the answer, Gabby thinks he's found some gold ore. But it ain't gold it's molybdenum, a good deal more valuable than gold some would say.

Anyway the Gordon Gekko of his day, Reginald Barlow, wants Roy's ranch. Roy's salvation might be tycoon Pierre Watkin. Roy's impressed his daughter Ann Baldwin well enough, a song or two usually does it, but between him and his tanglefoot geniuses of sidekicks, he's not doing so well on Watkin.

Most of the film takes place in the East, in Wall Street offices and on Long Island with the horsey set. Still the action returns to Apache Junction for some rootin' tootin' shootin' action as only Herbert J. Yates and Republic Pictures could deliver.

Wall Street Cowboy's not too bad a western, it probably pleased the Saturday matinée kids no end.
