Goofs

Even though Roy Rogers portrays two different characters in the picture, he rides his horse Trigger as both men. The most evident example occurs when the outlaws led by Clint Burns arrive to raid Sheriff Gabby Whitaker's ranch. Clint Burns (Roy) arrives and leaves aboard Trigger, and shortly after, Jesse James (Roy's other character) rides up to the ranch also riding Trigger. As Jesse, Roy also rides a different horse at other times. See more »

Great innovative western
7 July 1999 | by (Jackson OH) – See all my reviews

Roy plays a dual role in this classic western. He plays both Jesse James and the identical bad-guy Clint burns. The case of mistaken identity causes some problems for Jesse as he gets put in jail, then accused of burning down Gabby's house. Gale plays a newspaper reporter who is trying to get the scoop on Jesse. Together she and Roy capture the James Gang. This film may not be historically accurate, but it is great fun and a must-see if you're a Roy Rogers fan or a Gale Storm fan. (Gale steals the picture from Roy).
