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.

Storyline

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.

Quotes

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...?

Communists trying to steal weather predicting machine
29 December 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In Spoilers Of The Plains Roy Rogers was in definite need of help from his four legged friends. Not once, but twice did Trigger and the wonder dog Bullet pull him out of a tough scrape with the bad guys led by Grant Withers.

Roy runs an oil pipeline in this film and also operating in his vicinity is scientific rocket experiment station. Remember right about this time the USA was experimenting with some of Werner Von Braun's captured V-2s and trying to develop a rocket program of our own. The model that scientist William Forrest and his lovely assistant Penny Edwards is working on will aid in sending out long range weather forecasts.

Where there are experiments there are spies which is what Grant Withers and his crowd are. Under the cover of being oil drillers they want to steal what's inside the rocket, the gadget for the weather forecast. Those Communists, even trying to steal our weather forecasting equipment, is there no end to their skullduggery?

The best song Roy sings in this film is Rainbow Over Texas done quite nicely. Roy recorded a lot of his songs, but as a selling recording artist his rival Gene Autry left him way in the dust.

Gordon Jones was Roy's sidekick in a lot of the Rogers films toward the end of his Republic days, playing his usual amiable lunkhead. I do miss Andy Devine or Gabby Hayes in those parts though.

Spoilers Of The Plains will not disappoint Roy's legion of fans of all ages.
