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 »

To Sully his Robin Hood image
12 June 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In the days before he was permanently playing himself in stories of the modern west, Roy Rogers played a number of real western characters and in Jesse James At Bay he plays the title role. And we learn the 'true' story that being that Jesse was not shot in the back by Bob Ford.

When a couple of sharp crooks played by Pierre Watkin and Hal Taliaferro cheat a bunch of honest ranchers and farmers out of their spreads, sheriff Gabby Hayes on the Q.T. sends for Jesse who's been lying quiet in Nebraska and out of the reach of Missouri law enforcement. Of course this does present an ethical problem for Gabby as he is the sheriff and he is sending for a wanted outlaw.

But not to be outdone Watkin and Taliaferro use a gambler named Clint Burns also played by Roy Rogers to sully Jesse's image as a Robin Hood. Nevertheless Gabby and Roy as Jesse get on to the scheme and turn it to their advantage quite cleverly.

Roy does quite well in the dual role although later on I doubt his public would have tolerated a villainous Roy Rogers. Roy and Gabby have to contend with a pair of reporters played by Sally Payne and Gale Storm who want the 'real' story.

As what was said in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance 'print the legend'.
