Quotes

Gabby Whittaker: Let me tell you something, young fella. Never have nothing to do with no banks. If you got any money to protect, get yourself a good dog... like Whiskers here. It'd be a whole lot safer with him.

Typical good-ole guy routine...
21 August 2002 | by dwpollarSee all my reviews

1st watched 8/21/2002 - 5 out of 10(Dir-Joseph Kane): Typical good-ole guy routine from Roy Rogers where he figures out everything to solve the mystery of who robbed a bank in the good ole west. Pretty much what I expected, although there are some twists and turns in this one and the methods Rogers and his sidekick use to find out whodunit is fairly ingenious, but does this make it a good movie. Well, not really, it just makes it ok to watch. I think these films have their place and I'm glad to see them restored onto DVD but the plot is much too simple and the villains a little to nice for us veteran-film viewing folk. Bye for now pardners!!
