George 'Gabby' Hayes,
Twenty years earlier Farrell killed his mining partner Andrews. Now Andrews daughter arrives to get her father's trust fund. Farrell having rustled Roy's cattle now takes her money from her Lawyer and lets her overhear false information of their next rustling job. With the posse at the wrong location, his men attack the cattle train and Roy on board find himself greatly outnumbered. Written by

A ruthless gold miner blows his partner, only to discover that the mine he killed for is useless. He then squanders the trust-fund meant for the dead man's daughter and attempts to replace the funds by stealing Roy Roger's cattle.
Coming near the end of Roy's career as a Saturday matinée star (and TV re-launch), Night Time In Nevada is more violent and a bit more hard-boiled than previous films. The opening scene is a first-person murder confession, the subsequent killing of the train conductor pretty cold-blooded, and the climax full of people getting shot!
Villain Grant Withers is one really mean hombre! Walking and talking like a B-movie Broderick Crawford, he gives a great, nasty performance.
Comedic elements are down-played and Dale Evans nowhere to be found. In the edited version, Roy nor Bob Nolan and The Sons Of The Pioneers get a chance to sing! All of this, along with the edited version being black and white instead of color, contribute to the somewhat darker tone of the film.
