Storyline

Rodeo star Roy Rogers (Roy Rogers), returning with his horse "Trigger" to his home town, finds old Tom Craig (Leyland Hodgson) murdered and offers his aid to "acting sheriff" Gabby Whittaker (George Hayes). Roy meets Helen Williams (Dale Evans), new singer at the Trading Post club, who is on her way to see Craig about a family-heirloom crest which he has stolen from her father.

A good fun oater
1 April 2004 | by (Urbana, Illinois) – See all my reviews

An above-average Roy Rogers oater, with plenty of songs, intrigue and a more cohesive plot than many. It's a satisfying and fast-moving piece of fluff. Roy is, as usual, likable, and Dale is far sexier than I remember her in the 1950s tv show. If you like B-grade westerns, you can do far worse than taking the time to watch this.

An almost enlightened view toward Native Americans is a large part of the fun. The pow-wow that the local tribe is holding is treated sympathetically, and Roy's relationship with the Native Americans is treated in a matter-of-fact, friendly manner. The Native Americans themselves are never treated in a stereotypical, demeaning manner; when Roy gets the local tribe together to chase the villains, it's such a warped parody of the usual cowboys-n-Injuns scene that I had to laugh!
