This is an odd one for Roy. There are foreign spies, desert sites for rocket-launching and artificial satellites. The climax is a one-on-one fight on top of an oil derrick.

Roy runs a pipeline and near by is a rocket missile site. Camwell is after one of the missiles and to gain access to the site, steals oil from Roy's pipeline to sell. When the next missile is fired, Camwell is ready. He finds the missile, takes the data box, and replaces it with explosives set to go off just as the missile is returned to the site.

Did You Know?


Roy Rogers: Well, this is North Creek and the spot you showed me on the map is just downstream. Frankie, is there the possibility that someone besides yourself would like to get a hold of that rocket?
Frankie Manning: Very definitely - that's why I'm worried. It's an entirely new type and most of the computations are in J.D.'s head. If anything happened to him, or an unfriendly power got ahold of the instruments inside that rocket, it would be a terrible thing! But who around here...?

Despite the weird plot, it's worth seeing.
5 September 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While some of the plots of the Roy Rogers films during WWII were really weird, this late Rogers film might be among the very weirdest--and unlike the old west. It begins with an errant test missile landing on an oil line and exploding. Roy and Trigger don outfits that look like they're members of the Klan and they put it out. It seems that a government missile test site is nearby. Little does Roy know that eventually he'll be pulled into a battle to stop spies from stealing rocket and satellite plans! And, along for the ride is Roy's dog, Bullet--who manages to steal quite a few scenes! Like I said, this IS a very, very weird plot for a cowboy film! Despite the strangeness of the film, I thought the overall product was pretty good. It had plenty of action, Bullet and not all that much singing compared to the average Roy Rogers film (which is a BIG plus). Simple, old fashioned fun and nothing more.
