A Very Cunning Villain
9 June 2011 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

South Of Santa Fe has Roy Rogers with the rest of the Sons Of The Pioneers in New Mexico trying to get a group of wealthy investors to look at a mine owned by Linda Hayes. But gangster Paul Fix who is on the lam sees a real big opportunity to make a lot of quick bucks by kidnapping these rich guys.

Fix is one of the shrewdest and most dangerous of villains ever in a Roy Rogers western. He's put a neat little frame around Roy and the Sons and it will take every bit of cleverness to foil his dastardly scheme.

A fair share of music is in South Of Santa Fe though nothing really stands out. The best was a square dance where Bobby Beers and Judy Clark decide to liven things up with a jitterbug.

One of Roy's better films and I think I saw a much edited version because I had to fill some blanks in with the story. Still lots of action, lots of singing, and a very cunning villain for Roy to best.
