The map in Larue's office shows "New Mexico" and "Colorado Territory", however in the time of this movie these areas still belonged to Mexico. Several characters in the movie even refer to those areas as Mexico. See more »
In the days of the Texas Republic, Rangers Roy Rogers and Gabby Hayes are sent by a renegade General to collect a toll from travelers just outside Texas' border. In order to prevent bloodshed, the reluctant duo try to collect the money from a female wagon master, using more tactful methods than their replacements would have, causing even more problems.
A fairly lethargic production, the story just doesn't give off much sparks this time around as I would have liked. The action scenes aren't very hot either.
Roy and Gabby are still likable though and leading lady Julie Bishop is very attractive. However, there isn't much chemistry between her and Rogers. George Hayes and old-timer Si Jenks fair much better in that department!
Still, it's not Roy's worst, but he's definitely done a lot better.
