Molybdenum is a hard, gray metallic element used to toughen alloy steels and soften tungsten alloy. It is also used in fertilizers, dyes and enamels. Well, anyway, Roy's ranch is full of the stuff and an evil Wall Street syndicate wants to foreclose on the ranch when Roy has trouble making his mortgage payment. Written by

Roy Rogers (as Roy Rogers) and his two loyal hands George "Gabby" Hayes (as Gabby) and Raymond Hatton (as Chuckawalla) must save Mr. Rogers' Circle R ranch from wicked New York bankers, after the cowboy hero has trouble coming up with the mortgage payments. Complicating matters: a gold-like substance is discovered on Rogers' land.
Not surprisingly, the film fails to live up to the promise of its title "Wall Street Cowboy". Other than a "Wall St." sign and a "New York Chronicle" newspaper, there is not much to distinguish this from any other California-located Rogers western. Fast moving transportation moves the otherwise aimless story along. Rogers sings/yodels on a few good songs, like "Ride 'em Cowboy" and "Me and the Rollin' Hills". Smooth, but forgettable.
** Wall Street Cowboy (8/6/39) Joseph Kane ~ Roy Rogers, George 'Gabby' Hayes, Raymond Hatton
