The Long Chance is another exciting episode of The Roy Rogers Show
11 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

Bank robber Pete Grundy (Henry Rowland) is accused of stealing some school fund money. After pulling a gun on Roy and Dale at Dale's diner, he swears he didn't do it and promises to find out who did in exchange for deputy sheriff Roy's letting him get away for 30 minutes before looking for him. Many of Grundy's subsequent actions lead Roy to doubt him but since Pete acts mostly gentlemanly despite his outlaw reputation, Roy always gives him the benefit of a doubt. Pat Brady, on the other hand, manages to always get himself and Roy in some awful tight spots...Now here's a rare episode in which a bad guy acts good sometimes and might even go straight after whatever sentence he might serve! Rowland can be both charming and menacing here when the occasion warrants it and he and Rogers are great going back and forth on their respective opinions. Brady is his usual funny sidekick self and provides Henry with a most hilarious denouement. Only disappointment is Dale doesn't get in on the action as she usually does. Still a very good episode of The Roy Rogers Show.
