Sylvia Scarlett Goes West
28 August 2007 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Because this is a Roy Rogers picture no one could or would expect the same kind of sexual ambiguity situation with Dale Evans spending some of the film masquerading as a boy like Katharine Hepburn did in Sylvia Scarlett. At least not for long.

Dale's a young heiress from Chicago with a yen to see the place where her wealthy father sprung from, a desire not encouraged by Robert Emmett Keane as her father. She runs away and stows away on a train where her singing idol Roy Rogers is returning to Texas. It just so happens he's returning to the town of Dalrymple named for Dale's family.

Dale doesn't spend too much time in drag, Roy's fans were definitely not the kind to appreciate the subtleties of gender bending humor. The action returns to traditional western fare with Sheldon Leonard in an accustomed place as the gambler/villain looking to cash in big on a pony express style relay horse race.

Not bad, but a little out of the ordinary for Roy and Dale's fans.
