Another of Roy's Great Westerns
25 February 2003 | by (Mesa, AZ) – See all my reviews

I can't think of two people I like more then Roy Rogers and Dale Evans and they were fantastic in The Golden Stallion. And of course, Trigger too.

The story is filled with action, drama, music (they add just the right amount of music and don't get carried away with it), and of course, Roy and Trigger. It is heart breaking at times, but the bond of horse and man that Roy and Trigger truly shared on screen and off comes through in shining colors in this movie. And of course, it's a delight to be able to see some of Roy and Trigger's work in color.

I highly recommend it.
