Quotes

[first lines]
Roy Rogers: Golden horses - that's what they call the palominos. And palominos have quite a history. You know, the history of my own palomino began right here at this ranch. If I hadn't-a gone through that gate a few years back, I'd never have gotten my pal, Trigger.

The western Roy considered his finest.
28 November 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio.) – See all my reviews

Of all the 'B' westerns ever made, this one is probably the finest. The plot that follows after Gabby refuses to breed his horse with Roy's makes for good entertainment. I've heard the Rogers considered this his best western ever, and considering how entertaining it is, I can see why. A great example of 'B' westerns, a worth while watch.
