In this sequel to "The Paleface", Bob Hope and Jane Russell return as the lead characters. Hope plays Junior Potter, who returns to claim his father's gold, which is nowhere to be found. Throw in Russell as "Mike", the luscious head of a gang of thieves, and Roy Rogers as a federal marshal hot on her trail. Written by
Bob Hope offered the role of Mike to Maureen O'Hara but she turned it down. O'Hara loved the script but was going through an unhappy period in her marriage and felt that she would not be able to be funny in the film. See more »
After Roy Rogers completes his visit with the governor on the stage coach, Roy climbs out on top the coach and catches a limb from a tree. As he is hanging there he whistles for Trigger. When Trigger comes out from behind a bush, you can see the leg's of a person who was holding Trigger behind the bush until Roy called. See more »
Federal Agent Roy Rogers is on the trail of a mysterious bandit known as The Torch and little does he suspect at first that The Torch is that powerful piece of pulchritude, Jane Russell.
Of course gumming up his investigation is tenderfoot Bob Hope, who is the son of famous frontier scout Paleface Potter. Hope's not inherited much from his father's side. Therein lies a lot of the comedy in Son of Paleface.
The original Paleface film had the Academy Award winning song Buttons and Bows. This one has a whole load of musical numbers in it, better to utilize the talents of the three stars. One of them, Am I in Love was nominated for the Academy Award that year, but lost to Three Coins in the Fountain.
Best scenes in Son of Paleface involve the smartest horse in the west, Trigger, constantly outsmarting Hope. Well if Bing Crosby could constantly do it in every Road picture.................
