Quotes

Matt Brunner: Where's the girl?
Brunner's Henchman: Rogers got her. Some way, he found out she was arriving.
Matt Brunner: That's great, just great! That means changing our plans. Well, Clifford wanted some excitement. We'll have that lion hunt. Every year there's over 200 hunting accidents in the United States. This year, there'll be one or two more.

Counterfeiters, Mountain Lions,and Trigger
27 December 2006 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Roy Rogers has his hands full in this western. Dale's inherited the job as sheriff and she needs lots of help. We've got a rogue mountain lion on the trail and a gang of counterfeiters who've hit upon the ingenious scheme of counterfeiting old style gold notes which went out of circulation in 1933, but are still honored abroad.

A little history is in order. One of the New Deal measures from the beginning of the Roosevelt administration called for America to be taken off the gold standard. Previous to that, our money could be redeemable in gold bullion. Presumably that's what the ultimate object of the counterfeiters.

Anyway, they've captured a ex-convict counterfeiter who's working on the Double R Bar ranch of Roy's in a work release program. In fact in this film, most of Roy's hands are ex-convicts.

The dirty villains actually shoot Trigger in this one, but of course they only wound him. Which sets the stage for Pat Brady's finest hour. He was a lovable, but terribly useless sidekick for Roy and Dale, especially on their television show. But in this one, he's a veterinarian and when called upon, saves Trigger by removing the bullet.

Nothing terribly new here, but fans of the King of the Cowboys and the Queen of the west will like it.
