It's hard to score this and many other Roy Rogers films....
22 July 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

It's really hard to review this and many other Roy Rogers films because so many only now exist in severely truncated versions. That's because back in the 1950s, the films were chopped apart to fit them into a one hour time slot for television. In many cases, ten or more minutes are gone--and in this case, 14 minutes is gone. Perhaps the 14 minutes were bad (such as some songs)--but I just don't know. Maybe this film exists in BOTH versions--the original and the truncated. All I know is that this Netflix streaming version is the shorter one.

This film stars the familiar pair of Roy Rogers and Gabby Hayes. While Dale Evans hadn't yet joined the team (she would become a regular in the 1940s), there seemed to be a love interest in this one. The very familiar cowboy sidekick Raymond Hatton is on hand as Gabby's...um...friend. I say it this way because in their films together, they sound much more like a couple than a couple of friends. Perhaps I'm reading too much into this....

Anyway, the film is about some evil claim-jumpers who want to steal away Roy's land. Why? Well, first, because they are evil (duh) and second, because there is a rare mineral (Molybdenum--which is used for various steel alloys) on the property and it could be worth millions. The problem is that Roy has no idea this is so and he also has to deal with a grouchy Wall Street tycoon who has a cute daughter (Roy's love interest). The plot is a bit strange and not all that much time is spent on Wall Street (this might have made the film a lot more interesting). It's about average for a Rogers film--meaning it's passable entertainment but not especially inspired. Worth a look if you love the genre, otherwise it's just okay.
