Approximately 25% of this film's original running time landed on the cutting room floor when it was shortened for television fifty years ago. Only this abbreviated version appears to currently exist. See more »
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.
