Above average.
14 March 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The problem with watching Roy Rogers films is that most of them were chopped to pieces in the 1950s so they could be shoved into TV time slots. And, in many cases there are both the shortened and the full-length versions floating around out there to watch. In my case, I saw the expurgated 52 minute version. While I have no idea if the longer one is better, the shortened one played well and didn't seem like the story had been hacked to pieces.

This film stars Roy and Smiley Burnett as his sidekick--no Gabby or Dale in this one. The story is about Judge Gray--a tough man who enforces the law but has a secret--he was once in prison himself! When some bandits learn who he is as well as some gamblers, they try to blackmail him into helping them. But Gray is a swell fellow now--and calls their bluff. Not surprisingly, the set out to ruin him and it's up to Roy and Smiley to help him out of this predicament and restore law and order and niceness to the west.

Because this was the shortened version, the film's pacing is not hindered by as many songs as you might find in the average Roy Rogers flick. Plus, Smiley's songs are usually rather enjoyable and the action and plot are above average. Enjoyable fluff.
