Storyline

Night raiders are burning down the ranchers' barns and poisoning their cattle. Sheriff Gabby, unable to cope, goes east to get help from Roy, descendant of two famous sheriffs. Roy is a young entomologist who would rather study bugs than strap on guns. He finally gives in to Gabby's wishes and ends the terror. Written by Ed Stephan <stephan@cc.wwu.edu>

A Chip Off the Old Blocks
5 September 2007 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Roy Rogers is summoned by Sheriff "Gabby" Hayes to save a modern day town from a gang of cattle-poisoning arsonists. Gabby believes Mr. Rogers, if elected Sheriff, will follow in the footsteps of his Roy Rogers namesakes (including his father and grandfather). However, Rogers seems meek and mild; though a popular man, townspeople wonder if he is up to the job.

This is an interesting Rogers vehicle in that the character is presented as a hero perhaps not up to the task at hand; no points for guessing how he does, finally! There is the expected "shootout" to end the film, but it really peaks earlier as Rogers' car is stolen; he gets the car back in fine form. Rogers sings with Gabby, with Bob Nolan and the "Sons of the Pioneers", and with some unfortunately intrusive dialog.

**** Sons of the Pioneers (1942) Joseph Kane ~ Roy Rogers, George 'Gabby' Hayes, Maris Wrixon
