Roy Rogers and pals Bob Nolan and The Sons Of The Pioneers break with some unscrupulous showmen, in order to start their own ranch. Roy then decides to help his old, destitute mentor Harry Shannon by letting him masquerade as the ranch's half-owner in order to impress his daughter. She then takes it upon herself to sell her "father's half" to Roy's enemy.
The title Song Of Texas is a misnomer, as the address on a telegraphed message clearly reads that they're in New Mexico!
As far as the movie itself goes, it's pretty lightweight, but okay if you're in an undemanding mood. However, Shannon's character is pretty dumb and unlikable. I don't quite understand why Roy goes this far out of his way to help. Shannon's daughter is lovely, but unappealing too.
The opening scene has Roy bringing Trigger into a hospital room to visit sick children. As sweet as it was, I don't think they allow that in real life!
