When John Barrabbee's plane makes an emergency landing, he wanders off and joins Roy's cattle drive. Later he learns he was killed when his plane resumed its flight and crashed. He also learns his daughter is going to sell his ranch and marry a man he dislikes.

Favorite Roy Rogers Movie
14 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Song of Nevada is in my top 10 list of favorite Roy Rogers Movies. The writing and story line is very good, larger budget than his usual movies, very good songs, lavish ending production number and an overall good movie. It was cut from 75 minutes to 54 minutes for TV, but recently the 75 minute uncut version became available from the Roy Rogers Museum. For some reason I still think there are two songs missing from their "uncut" version: "A Cowboy Has To Yodel In The Morning" by Roy and "Hi Ho Little Doggies" by the Sons of the Pioneers. But it is still worth buying as this version has much more than the 54 minute version. Also Mary Lee sings some nice songs and adds to the story.
