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 1950s. 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 its 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 »

[Roy reads from the paper he has picked up]
"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.

I believe this film was my very first RR film, followed by The Far Frontier, which convinced me that the only cowboy hero to emulate for me was Roy Rogers. Why else would they call him "King of the Cowboys." I do recall having the 78 rpm record of the title song and memorizing the words. On the flip side was "I've Got A Feelin' (that somebody's stealing my darling). While I have only seen the truncated b&w version, I know that there is a fight scene missing from where Tito Guizar is recovering from a gunshot wound and the heavies want to take him back to town for the reward. Roy intercedes and there is a fight resulting in a fall into a nearby lake. This scene is included in the original trailer which is available along with other B westerns on video. I particularly like the song "Here is my helping hand" done by the Sons of the Pioneers which expressed their willingness to help out Roy in a crisis. Hopefully they will release the complete edition on DVD so that younger generations can appreciate a typical Saturday afternoon RR western.
