Goofs

Immediately after the scene in which Bob's hat is crushed, there is a close-up of Roy in which we catch a glimpse of Bob in the background wearing a perfectly unspoiled hat. Shortly afterward when everyone runs into the hacienda after hearing the shot, his hat is still as good as new. See more »

Unintentionally hilarious.
16 October 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I don't care how much of a fan you are of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans--you've got to admit that this is a very bad film. In fact, it's the only film they made that truly made my skin crawl...it's THAT bad. Why is it so bad? Well, a pretty senorita is hurt very badly and Dale comes up with an insane plan--to don a black wig and pose as a Mexican!! I think that the Swedish Chef would have been more convincing! She is, to put it bluntly, absolutely terrible. Later, for no apparent reason, Roy tells everyone that he's killed the senorita--and I have absolutely no idea why! On top of that, the writing isn't very good and there is the usual Rogers/Evans cliché where they meet and hate each other. A bad film in just about every way...and dumb, dumb, dumb to boot.
