Storyline

Game Warden Roy Rogers (Roy Rogers) finds the remains of a slaughtered fawn which has been killed by two prison escapees, Bob Oliver (Robert Bice) and Del Roberts (Douglas Fowley.) He finds the sheriff of Susanna Pass is sick and has to take on the task of tracking them down himself, and gets more hindrance than help from ex-bullfighter Carlos Mendoza (Martin Garralaga) and his daughter Rita (Estelita Rodriguez.) Roy checks with local newspaper owner Martin Masters (Robert Emmett Keane)who professes ignorance of the whereabouts of the hunted men, though he is actually in cahoots with Roberts. The latter shows up after Roy leaves and tells Masters he has knifed Bob and left him for dead in the woods. The two have a scheme for dynamiting the lake and hatchery property for the oil underneath, and disposing of the property owner Russell Masters (Francis Ford), Martin's brother, and taking title of the property. At the inquest, after the murder of Russell, Martin is surprised to find that ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

'B' Western NOIR (?) in TRUCOLOR!
25 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If there is such a thing as a ROY ROGERS 'Noir Western' then SUSANNA PASS (1949) is it. Not because it was literally in a dark style because it is a brightly shot in TRUCOLOR, but that its themes were the darkess of any ROGERS film I have ever seen.

The plot features very modern concepts. The exploitation of the Earths natural resources versus their preservation and use for future generations. This time it is OIL against a natural habitat used to raise FISH and provide a experimental research center. Two (2) Brothers are on opposite sides on this matter. MARTIN MASTERS (Robert Emit Keane) wants that 'Black Gold', RUSSELL MASTERS (Lucien Littlefield) aided by KAY 'Doc' PARKER (Dale Evans) nature and research. MARTIN is assisted by escaped convict ROBERTS (Douglas Fowley) with 'Henchmen' VINCE (David Sharpe). Nothing is going to stop these Men including murder. Enter ROY ROGERS and his sidekicks who eventually bring to justice the guilty and preserve the wild. There is more too it then that, so watch the movie.

The film has several interesting features. It is filmed in TRUCOLOR a development of a early two (2) strip color process in competition with TECHNICOLOR. So GREEN is the dominant color. This was used almost exclusively by REPUBLIC PICTURES. The 'Comedy Relief' and singing are kept to a minimum compared to the typical 'Oater' of the time. Dale Evans when not in her work clothes looks very 'chic' is some 'New Look' Dior Fashions. At the end of the picture ROY rides off and 'Doc' PARKER (Dale) goes back to her research. What NO romance, yes, their relationship in this film is strictly platonic, BUMMER!
