Roy Battles Bad Guys... And Hits On His Sister?!!
14 May 2010 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Roy Rogers is recruited by the Wyoming Cattlemen's Association and the federal government in order to go back to Gabby Hayes' ranch, where he was adopted and grew up, to ferret out a gang of cattle rustlers that are stealing beef intended for government consumption.

Good photography and some atmospheric scenes, including a neat night-time cattle rustle opening, highlight this fairly enjoyable Roy Rogers flick.

The heavies are pretty three-dimensional this time around and Roy joins Bob Nolan and The Sons Of The Pioneers for a few nice musical numbers. It's all good.

Kind of creepy though is Roy's making passes at his adoptive sister, especially the one on the street, near the beginning. That time he seemed downright lecherous!
