Trivia

The print shown on Turner Classic Movies, from Peter Rodgers Organization, is undoubtedly an old 16mm print made for the home movie market before being sold to television in the early 1950's. The tip-off is on the Republic Pictures Logo and the opening title card over which a black bar has been superimposed on the print covering what must have been the words 'In Trucolor'. In 1952 it was cut to 54 minutes for the television market and distributed by Hollywood Television Service whose logo then replaced Republic Pictures on the opening and closing of all their prints; if this were a print made for television it would have those earmarks. The commercially available VHS tapes are also B&W and possibly from the same source, if complete, or else from the television print source, if incomplete. Television prints were all both edited and in black and white. The version shown on the Western Channel is the shorter, television version. See more »

Goofs

Early in the picture, when Roy sits on Candy Martin's suitcase to help get it closed, there are pieces of clothing sticking out the side. However when the suitcase is finally closed and latched, no clothing is visible. See more »

Quotes

[Roy reads from the paper he has picked up]
Roy Rogers: "Your eyes are like deep desert wells, with sparks from silver stars above. / Your voice is sweet as mission bells, your skin is like a marble dove." Don't ever fall in love, Trigger; that's what it does to you.

Roy Rogers was all wet -- twice; and still looked good

Roy Rogers movies tend to be pretty lightweight, at least the ones I've been able to see within memory.

But Roy Rogers himself is endearing.

I think it was while watching "Dark Command," the John Wayne movie (though Claire Trevor gets first billing, for some reason), that I first realized Roy Rogers was really an excellent actor.

It is likely that he rose to such prominence mostly because of his winning personality and good looks, rather than the movie plots, but in studying Western movie history, I learned that when he was given his chance to be the star of his own series, he set out to be good at his job. For example, he took riding lessons, and in my opinion was one of the best riders, certainly among those who hadn't been riders since childhood (such as John Wayne and Gary Cooper).

And even late in life, he was still a good singer, having been a great one earlier.

This movie gave us Rogers in really good form: He got to do just about everything he was good at, singing, riding, and acting.

I was rather bored in the beginning, but by golly this movie takes off and becomes downright exciting.

Of course, there is a great cast, with the Sons of the Pioneers getting to stand out, and stunts and action by the great Fred Graham.

Each cast member is memorable, and I highly recommend this to everyone. Those who enjoy Hollywood history especially should watch and pay attention to the individuals performing. You'll find it fun and educational.
