Slightly better than average Roy Rogers fare.
23 July 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

56 abbreviated--songs removed Andy Devine Adele Mara modern starts off with odd prologue--to whom was he talking?! plan on cheating lady out of $50000 Farrell (Grant Withers)

"Night Time in Nevada" is slightly better than average Roy Rogers film. It's worth seeing if you are a fan but that's really about all. However, my review should be taken with a grain of salt--I only saw an abbreviated version. That's because in the 1950s, many of his movies were cut down to fit into a TV time slot and in this case, the film was 56 minutes, not the original 67 minutes. I assume the big difference is that they cut out nearly all the songs to make this shorter version. And, in this case, this isn't so bad, as it made the film a bit tighter and smoother. The film also has a bonus because it does not co-star Dale Evans. I say this because too often Dale played a kooky and annoying character. Here, Adele Mara plays a more believable sort of woman--not some annoying idiot*.

The film starts off very oddly. You hear Farrell narrating as it shows him murdering his long-time partner. You also learn that his partner had a daughter and she is entitled to his small fortune--something Farrell isn't about to allow since he is evil. When she (Mara) does arrive, Farrell connives with his lawyer friend to delay her. He also is the same evil galoot who stole Roy's cattle. Can Roy and Gabby get to the bottom of this? What do you think?!

All in all, a decent sort of western that is mindless escapism. Enjoyable but undemanding.

*While Rogers and Dale Evans were married in real life, I was always surprised at the ditsy roles Evans always received. After all, in the dozens of Roy and Dale films I've seen, I cannot recall one where she is level-headed and normal! Try watching a few yourself--you'll see what I mean.
