roy and dale never fail.
3 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

First of all, I wish that some of the contributors to these pages would learn to use spell check, spell names correctly and, in general stop bastardizing the English language. Sometimes it looks like maybe one of 10 graduated middle school.

As for the 'bells' pic, I found it thoroughly enjoyable. It was Dale Evans at her best, cute, perky and, as it was proved in real life, an excellent partner for the Slye one.

The plot did not tax the brain, the bad guys were particularly annoying (I mean that in a complimentary way) and, of course, The Sons of the Pioneers showed why they were one of the top western groups.

I can't comment on the color since my version is in living black and white.

This movie is a very pleasant way to spend time. Oh, and kudos to Andy Devine. He was all over the place in those days - so many movies and, of course, a semi-regular on Jack Benny's show. He is simply as his name implies.

The most pleasant surprise in this movie was Dale Evans in a role that gave her more to do than usual.

See the flick, review it and do so with some intelligence - even semi-intelligent would be welcome.
