Roy Rogers is summoned by Sheriff "Gabby" Hayes to save a modern day town from a gang of cattle-poisoning arsonists. Gabby believes Mr. Rogers, if elected Sheriff, will follow in the footsteps of his Roy Rogers namesakes (including his father and grandfather). However, Rogers seems meek and mild; though a popular man, townspeople wonder if he is up to the job.
This is an interesting Rogers vehicle in that the character is presented as a hero perhaps not up to the task at hand; no points for guessing how he does, finally! There is the expected "shootout" to end the film, but it really peaks earlier as Rogers' car is stolen; he gets the car back in fine form. Rogers sings with Gabby, with Bob Nolan and the "Sons of the Pioneers", and with some unfortunately intrusive dialog.
**** Sons of the Pioneers (1942) Joseph Kane ~ Roy Rogers, George 'Gabby' Hayes, Maris Wrixon
