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.
[Roy steps of the platform onto the sidewalk]
Would you care to answer a few simple questions?
Are you going to ask them?
Then I'm sure they'll be 'simple'.

Roy helps keep Dale and Gabby's wild west show in business even as Tom Keene's competing show slyly tries to wreck them.
Not a formula oater. There's no gunplay, little hard riding, and only brief fisticuffs. But there is a chariot race, of all things. In fact, I'd call this a personality western if there were such a thing. Anyway, that's the real attraction, a really engaging Roy, a sparkling Dale who gets to emote more than usual, and of course the great Gabby who even warbles a few refrains and in his own voice too. Together, they're delightful, making this an easygoing surprise and a different kind of matinée.
