LOADED...for your entertainment! You'll find a NEW Roy Rogers...more likeable in a role that fits his personality like a glove...greater action...songs...and all the exciting background of the Golden West (original window card poster)
I don't know what it's like where you've been hanging out, but around here when two men go out on a job together, we figure two of them ought to come back. If you don't know what I mean, I can make myself clearer.

Roy Rogers is in the title role as The Man From Cheyenne who's been hired by the federal government to investigate rustling. Remember this is 1942 and war rationing has elevated cattle rustling to the status of a federal crime. But Roy's originally from the area where a lot of rustling is taking place so it's thought he can investigate freely without necessarily being thought of as law enforcement.
It doesn't take too much investigating to discover that socialite Lynne Carver and her foreman William Haade are the organized band of rustlers who are presumably selling meat on the black market. Carver bats an eye at some of her neighbors and they spill all kinds of information that can be used by the gang. Both Sally Payne and Gale Storm are suspicious of her from the gitgo, but Roy requires more proof.
Although The Man From Cheyenne is dated in terms of the time and place that the film is in, it still holds up very well as entertainment. I definitely would put this one down as one of Roy Rogers better westerns from Republic.
