Radio Cowboy Returns To His Roots
13 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

In the modern west where Roy Rogers westerns were being set in, presumably the cattle and sheep range wars were a thing of the past. But in The Man From Music Mountain rancher Paul Kelly is looking to get it all started again, the object being to have the sheepherders grazing rights revoked by the government so he can grab it all for himself.

Standing in the way are sisters Ruth Terry and Ann Gillis who own a sheep ranch, but they've got some hands working with Kelly to drive them off their spread.

Roy Rogers plays visiting radio cowboy who has not forget his western roots. He gets himself secretly deputized and with some forensics discovers who's been doing some promiscuous shooting.

The Man From Music Mountain which was the title of a Gene Autry hit a few years back sadly got butchered for television and a lot of the singing was excluded. I agree with the previous reviewer that a director's cut would be a lot better, but we're not likely to see one of those.
