However, shots before and after the close-up show them standing around in the hall and living-room, until they head for the stairs at Roy's signal. See more »
Roy Rogers Takes On Big Nasty Dogs And Mean Old Women!
When the owner of a ranch for orphan boys is murdered by trained dogs and his will fraudulently changed to benefit a nephew no one has met, Marshal Roy Rogers attempts to the bottom of the mysterious death, ending up at odds with not just the killers, but the whole community as well.
This is a fairly interesting murder mystery, though the murderers are revealed to the audience immediately. It's kind of rare to see a Saturday matinée western where the main heavy is an old woman! The real question is who the mysterious heir is and why he wants his uncle dead (an easy guess).
There's also a surprising amount of sadistic violence this time around, with Roy getting beaten, dragged behind a horse, and bull-whipped. Meanwhile, the dogs are mauling people and Roy even punches out Cookie Bullfincher!
