Dorothy Bryant: [singing] Now, way down upon the Swanee River, / Folks keep jivin' all the day long; / 'Cause that's where I'm gonna stay forever / With a gate who'll make my life a song. / So honey chile, on that day, / When you come my way, / I'll say, "Thank Dixie for me!"

Love Utah
2 January 2014 | by timbertrail4444See all my reviews

Another Roy Rogers movie when Republic Studios had his movies loaded with songs and music which I love.You must get the uncut version of this movie to really appreciate it. Bob Nolan and the Sons of the Pioneers sing some very good songs along with Roy. Gabby Hayes has some good lines when fighting with the women who he wishes would leave the west and go back to Chicago. There is an excellent musical stage ending where they all sing the title song and several others. The one scene where Roy, Dale and the Pioneers sing Utah against a backdrop of scenes from that beautiful state is a highlight of this movie. Again watch the uncut version.
