Great Early Roy Rogers
6 April 2010 | by FightingWesternerSee all my reviews

Immediately after being admitted into the Union, the original Texas Rangers disband, leaving an out of work Roy Rogers to join the United States Cavalry. Without the Rangers, violence and lawlessness heat up. Roy's brother ends up being killed by a new and crooked, protection-selling "state patrol", forcing him to desert his post in order to avenge the murder.

Come On, Rangers is better produced than many of Rogers' other early features. The photography, locations, and direction are all pretty good, while the story is fast-paced and exciting, with a few good songs to smooth over the rough spots.

Roy's sidekick this time around is Raymond Hatton, who's pretty interesting in that he's not so much a comic foil as he is just an odd, leathery, squinty-eyed codger.
