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 »

Quotes

Roy Rogers VS. Roy Rogers
10 February 2010 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

When a crooked banker/railroad man attempts to swindle some farmers, Sheriff Gabby Hayes sends word to his old friend Jesse James (Roy Rogers), who robs the banks and railroads in order to make things right. The villain retaliates by hiring Jesse's slack-jawed double (Rogers again) to make trouble in order to discredit James.

Jesse James At Bay is a typical but okay vehicle for Roy, who's pretty good at playing the heavy, though he gets to sing only once during the movie and then only a few verses.

This is Roger's second time playing double in a movie, the first time being as Billy the kid and Billy's good-guy replacement in 1938's Billy The Kid Returns and the third being 1942's Sunset On The Desert.
