Too much singing--even for a Roy Rogers film.
26 June 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

There are two broad categories of Roy Rogers westerns--those where there is a story punctuated by songs and those which are nothing but a long series of songs punctuated, occasionally, by plot. "The Yellow Rose of Texas" falls into that latter category. The film has TONS of songs and the plot itself is pretty limp--making it one of the weaker Rogers films.

The Yellow Rose from the title is actually a showboat. And, since showboats have lots of singing and dancing, that's exactly what you get a lot of during the movie. Now the Sons of the Pioneers were in better form than usual--but I am sure kids at the time squirmed in their seats when in addition, Roy, Dale and practically everyone began singing through the course of the film! As for the plot (what little there is of it), Roy is (once again) playing an undercover agent. He's insinuated himself on the boat to follow Dale. After all, her father is assumed to have been involved with a robbery and he's missing--and maybe by following her he'll locate the dad. Now here's where it gets pretty limp--when Roy finally finds the guy, he immediately assumes he's innocent...because Dale tells him! And the rest of the film is devoted to Roy the social worker to prove this and help everyone to live happily ever after. A bit typical of his plots--but pretty weak as well.

Overall, if you are a Roy Rogers fan, by all means watch it. Others, however, might be better served trying some of his other films first.
