A gang, headed by evil Stephanie Bachelor, is slaughtering game out of season. Roy finds the freezer where the meat is kept, but baddie Roy Barcroft finds him there. A famous fight takes place in the freezer. Roy, of course, wins it.
Vera Martin, a scheming housekeeper in her late twenties, receives orders to vacate the Bagley Ranch, over which she has held sway since the death of the owner. Bagley has left the ranch to his nephew Rodney T. Blackton, instead of to Vera as she had expected. Adjoining ranch owner Gregg Jackson arrives to offer his sympathy... and a possible way out. He plans to dam the river above the Bagley Ranch, diverting the water to his property leaving all the other ranchers dry and, while he is at it, to rustle all the Bagley cattle and fake a $5,000 mortgage on the ranch, licking new-owner Ridney T. before he starts. Roy Rogers, Gabby Whittaker and the Sons of the Pioneers, pass through the country just as Sylvia Clark, guardian of the one-year old Rodney T., arrives with her ward. They all arrive at the ranch just as Vera and Jackson are completing their frame-up. Roy is suspicious, and when Jackson informs Sylvia that the ranch is barren, has no cattle and a mortgage due in two weeks, Roy ...Written by

When Gabby pulls the tablecloth off the table, there is a large bowl with a serving spoon in it that stops near the edge. When the camera angle changes the spoon is gone. See more »
Some job. I don't mind doin' a gal a favor, but all we do is ride. Burnin' up good energy and saddle leather!
You been burnin' up her food, too, ain't you? Why, you're gorged to the gills right now.
All he can hear is the dinner bell. Two helpings of stew he had, and last night I saw him take a whole pie and hide it in the garbage chute.
Awww, I never did...
Garbage chute! I thought that was a cooler!

Highly enjoyable...and with a female villain for a change.
I was very happy to find that this Roy Rogers film was the original full version. I say this because in the 1950s, the original Rogers films were edited (in some cases HIGHLY and poorly edited) to fit them into TV time slots. While many of the cowboy films at archive.org are trimmed, this copy is not and free to copy.
When the film begins, the viewer is at first sympathetic towards Vera. After all, she's lived on this ranch for some time and considers it hers--but now she's learned it's not hers and was willed to some easterner. So, with the help of her even more evil neighbor, they conspire to ruin the ranch and then buy it off the new owner for a pittance. Interestingly, however, the new owner is a baby--and his guardian is determined to make a go of it since she has help from Roy, Gabby and the Sons of the Pioneers.
While the plot isn't unfamiliar, it's handled well and the songs are a bit better than average. Overall, a very good installment of the Roy Rogers films. Not the best but better than average. Plus, it's a rare case where you get to hear Gabby sing as well!
