Jovial B-Western with Nice Cast
24 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Silver Spurs" is an enjoyable Roy Rogers vehicle which moves along at a brisk pace. I like the fact that it never settles on one genre -- is it a musical Western, or a suspenseful comedy? -- and that it boasts a cast that's a notch better than what you would expect from a low budget B picture. Roy gets to sing a few short-but-sweet numbers with The Sons of The Pioneers and the supporting players are a joy: Phyllis Brooks, John Carradine, Jerome Cowan, Joyce Compton (not playing a dumb blonde for once), and Western regular Smiley Burnette. I was also amazed at the stunts Trigger could do; he truly was "The Smartest Horse in the Movies"!
