Timber! ... and Watch Out for That Horse ...
6 September 2007 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Roy Rogers (as Roy) is an insurance investigator who goes undercover to solve a robbery; among the suspects is Dale Evans (as Betty Weston)'s father Harry Shannon (as Sam Weston), who has just broken jail. Mr. Rogers gets a job singing on Ms. Evans' show boat "Yellow Rose of Texas". Later, Bob Nolan and the "Sons of the Pioneers" are hired, too. Evans doesn't think her dear father Harry Shannon is guilty. Do you?

Mr. Nolan and the Sons are in fine voice, with the first rendition of "Timber!" an obvious highlight. The plot really doesn't make much sense, by Rogers seems to figure it out (so you won't have to); it is resolved with the opening of a box on the "Show Boat". Watch as a fake horse almost knocks Dale Evans over when she enters to sing the final version of the title song!
