Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When at the start of the movie Roy Rogers sings "Four legged friend" his stirrups have blue covers with "RR" on them, denoting Roy Rogers and not his character's initials. See more »

Bob Hope plays Potter, returning to claim his father's gold, but it can't be found. Mike, played by Jane Russell, is a leader of a gang of thieves, and Roy Rogers as a federal marshal hot on the trail of thieves. It is very funny and lots of gimmicks, and the musical numbers are very good. I never realized that Roy Rogers had such a good singing voice. Jane Russell and Bob Hope do their own songs which are enjoyable, but not as memorable as "Buttons & Bows" from the original. One of the funniest scenes is with Trigger, Roy Roger's horse sleeping with Hope. 7/10
