Good morning Margie. Don't mind me calling you by you're name on this program, but would you mind stepping up here for a minute?
[Margie hesitates, while her friends tell her to go ahead]
Then I'll step down there.

In Lights of Old Santa Fe, Roy and the Sons of the Pioneers are busy trying to save a wild west show that is owned by Dale Evans and run by Gabby Hayes.
Dale's an eastern girl who inherited the show from her father and of late it's gone to seed. She's gotten two good offers from Tom Keene, one to buy the show, the other a proposal of marriage. Keene's a rival owner and he's determined to get the show one way or another.
Of course all that doesn't sit well with Roy who smells a rat and in these films, Roy's nose is unerring.
The highlight of the film is when Keene challenges Rogers to a chariot race. Not as silly as it sounds because the chariots are part of the show. The two of them go at each other worthy of Stephen Boyd and Charlton Heston. Of course Heston and Boyd were working in a film with a slightly bigger budget.
Roy and Dale do make some pretty music together and even Gabby gets to warble a verse from the title song.
That alone might make a fan curious.
