Standard Roy Rogers Feature, Satisfactory Light Entertainment
9 July 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Idaho" has all of the characteristics that one expects in a Roy Rogers feature, and it works pretty well as light entertainment. Roy takes on some rather inept villains, while trying to win the girl, and there is a little singing, some comic relief (this time from Smiley Burnette), and some very short scenic shots meant to suggest the hills of Idaho.

The story concerns a respected judge who is trying to clean up a saloon run by the notorious Belle Bonner. Belle has discovered some secrets about the judge's past, and she has her brutish accomplices try to frame the judge for some of their own crimes. Deputy Roy trusts the judge, but his boss does not, setting up a fast-paced if mostly predictable story.

This is very much a normal Roy Rogers film, decent light entertainment without any surprises.
