One of my favourite Rogers films!
1 June 2001 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favourite Roy Rogers films...it's only 55 minutes, so the writing is tight and there aren't many distractions from the story (which is a problem in some later ones); the music is at its top; the acting is all quite good; there's even a stagecoach race!! And the story itself is quite amusing, which also became a problem in later films when they were being churned out a mile a minute and the quality severely deteriorated. It's just a shame the print I saw was really poor quality...it would have been even more enjoyable.

I'm not the biggest Roy Rogers fan, I don't like the genre much, although I find his films more amusing than most others (and I near-*despise* Gene Autry...), but sometimes he's on, and he is here. His screen-presence is really high here, and he plays off of the other characters quite well.

Overall: This is definitely better than most of the others I've seen; I should probably hunt down some more of the earlier ones...I'd definitely recommend this to any Rogers fan! 8/10.
