"Why couldn't you have yelled 'Whoa'?"
9 May 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Excellent Roy Rogers vehicle with a great, wily performance by John Carradine as an added bonus.

Good pacing and good direction (and yes, a few very good stunts) place this way above similar movies. Even the usually annoying side-kick role (with this one, it's Smiley Burnette as "Frog") isn't that bad at all.

Also, far less corny than some would first expect if you've seen others with similar plots from this time period.

There are a few very good action sequences, and some very funny lines if you're in the right mood.

The story mostly involves a "mail-order bride"; Mary the reporter going in to get a story about the "playboy" rancher and what is obviously a "phoney deal". Rogers is only trying to help his boss. However, the rancher is shot (admittedly, it was one unbelievably good shot through a car window from a fair distance) and Roy is conveniently framed when he shows up at the accident scene to check things out. Of course, you know that everything is bound to turn out for the best. There is also time for a couple good old songs.

10/10.
