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.

Spanish Trail Mix-Up
31 March 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

With "The Great Southwestern Tent Show" in town, cowboy king Roy Rogers (as Roy Rogers) learns a featured attraction, his singing "Sons of the Pioneers" pals, have a $10,000 I.O.U. debt due. From sleepwalking constable Andy Devine (as Cookie Bullfincher), Mr. Rogers learns about a convenient $10,000 reward for the capture of a bandit known as "The Gypsy". Rogers wants to capture the Spanish outlaw, and pay off his friends' debt. But, Rogers' target, Tito Guízar (as Rico), may not be the guiltiest gun in the west…

This colorful "cross-over" western for singing cowboys Rogers and Mr. Guízar is better than "The Gay Ranchero" (1948), a similar vehicle. Pretty Dale Evans stand-in Jane Frazee (as Candy Martin) arouses romantic feelings in both men; she has an amusing introductory scene, with Rogers collecting her undergarments from a fallen suitcase - watch as he holds her slip in his teeth! Estelita Rodriguez (as Lola) is memorable. The songs are smooth and forgettable, except for Ms. Rodriguez' lively "Guadalajara". The ending is well staged.
