Roy, Dale and Trigger in a pleasant western trifle...
28 August 2007 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Here's a Roy Rogers western based on a Max Brand magazine story and starring Roy with DALE EVANS, TRIGGER and SHELDON LEONARD as the gambling villain.

It's poorly edited in the version shown on TCM with abrupt cuts from scene to scene and fadeouts that reflect the low-budget production values. The choppy editing even extends to the final "The End" credit where the music is suddenly cut off.

The story is a trifle with Dale masquerading at the start as a boy when she's a stowaway on a train carrying Roy Rogers and Trigger. GEORGE 'GABBY' HAYES gets her to admit her masquerade and before you know it the plot, with some nice musical interludes, is off on a fast pony express contest that Rogers finally wins--in time for a final musical version of a sprightly number called "Rainbow Over Texas." Roy briefly takes time out to solve the shooting incident in a crowded barroom before the fadeout.

It's nothing much, but I'm sure it pleased Roy's fans back in 1946. The very slim plot all takes place within a brisk hour.

The Sons of the Pioneers do a nice job on a couple of pleasant western numbers and both Dale and Roy sing their songs with professional ease.
