When Roy and Alkali climb into the hatch of the boat to hide, Roy is on the left and they both have their hats on. In the close-ups of them listening to the sheriff's conversation with Billie, they have switched places in the hatch and their hats are off. When they climb out after the sheriff leaves they are back in their original places and their hats are on. See more »

Red State Chemistry
23 March 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Apache Rose finds Roy Rogers giving up the cowboy life and becoming an oil wildcatter although he still dresses like a cowboy and rides Trigger. He's on the Pacific shores in this film and in some beach caves finds evidence of oil. Not too hard since it's oozing right up from the ground, wouldn't need a geologist to see this one.

The oil is on an old Spanish land grant ranchero owned by Russ Vincent who is in some deep debt to gambler George Meeker. He owns the ranchero but in partnership with cousin Donna Martell. She has to be eliminated before Meeker can squeeze Vincent.

Dale Evans is in this and it would surprise a lot of fans to know that Dale was only in about half of Roy's films. Those are of course the best of the Rogers films, they do have a nice chemistry. On another of their films I said that they were a kind of red state Tracy and Hepburn and that holds true for Apache Rose.

Character actor Olin Howland had the sidekick role in this one and while he's all right, you do miss Gabby Hayes or Andy Devine.

Definitely one for fans of Roy and Dale.
