Storyline

Since the first covered wagon pioneers came west, the Adams family has bred fine horses on their ranch near Buckaroo ad bronze statues of succeeding generations of Adams men stand in the town square. Their horses have always been famous and until recent years regularly won the government cavalry horse reward. The current holder of the family name, Jeff Adams (Joseph Crehan) is proud of his horses and the ranch but he prefers gambling to business; so, for several years, he has let the contract for horses slide into the hands of suave and shifty Buckaroo businessman Brock Danver (Onslow Stevens) who has his eyes set on the Adams ranch and means to get control of it. He also has an eye on Jeff's pretty, stage-struck daughter Kim (Ruth Terry.) Roy Rogers (Roy Rogers), a light-hearted, foot-loose , singing cowboy rides into town>Kim likes Roy's singing, and save him from being thrown into jail as a saddle-tramp sans cash, by Danver's stooge-sheriff Mac Marclay (LeRoy Mason) - she gives Roy...

I Love Hands Across the Border
1 January 2014 | by timbertrail4444See all my reviews

One of my all time favorite Roy Rogers movies. I love the music and catchy tunes in this movie. Bob Nolan and the Sons of the Pioneers add to the music and plot. I have the full length version and just love the musical ending. Republic Pictures loaded Roy's movies with musical numbers from 1943-1945 after the head of the studio saw Oklahoma on Broadway and I am glad he did. Everyone looks great and the scenery is wonderful.

I compare this movie with several others Roy made around that time including Song of Nevada (1944), San Fernando Valley (1944) and Utah (1945) which had a lot of music and songs and are wonderful to watch. Try and get the complete versions and not the 54 minute edited for TV versions.
