Trail of Robin Hood (1950)

*** (out of 4)

Roy Rogers has to come to the aid of buddy Jack Holt when his Christmas tree market gets attacked by a group of bad men wanting to take over the business and jack up prices. TRAIL OF ROBIN HOOD has a title that doesn't make too much sense but I'd say the entire story that takes up the 68-minutes doesn't make much sense. However, if you're coming to a "B" Western for its story then I guess you'd be letdown by most items in the genre as you really can't look at the story too hard. This film is mainly going to appeal to film buffs of the genre who not only get to see Rogers doing his thing but we've got Jack Holt making a return to the genre. It's interesting to note that the story here does have a couple interesting things in it. One is that there's a sequence where it's brought up that people have forgotten old Western stars but they're now getting to know them on television. There's another scene where one of Holt's silent Westerns are shown and this was a good thing because it probably reminded several people in 1950 that the current crop of Western stars all owed something to Holt and others. Not only will this entertain film buffs but the film also features other "B" Western stars making cameo appearances including Rex Allen, Allan "Rocky" Lane, Tom Tyler, Monte Hale, William Farnum, Ray Corrigan, Kermit Maynard and Tom Keene. All of these factors make the film worth watching and of course you get a fine performance from Rogers in the Trucolor glory. Fans of the genre should have a good time with this as long as they don't take the entire Christmas tree thing too serious. Plus there are plenty of good fights and a really fun climax involving a burning bridge.
