Mediocre Roy Rogers
5 November 2009 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Retiring as Sheriff of Dodge City, Roy comes to Tombstone to be with his brother, only to find he's dead and the town overcome with lawlessness. He's almost immediately mistaken for a hired gun, called upon by crooked businessmen to be the new Sheriff.

The Sheriff Of Tombstone has all the things you'd expect from a Roy Rogers western, mainly some good action scenes and a few catchy songs but not much else, making this barely adequate entertainment and not one of his best adventures.

Roy and especially George "Gabby" Hayes are good, as usual. I just wish this were a better vehicle.
