Keep an eye on that scene when Roy Rogers gets into a scrap with henchman Vic Rabin and the rest of his rowdies. The tear on the back of Roy's shirt changes size and shape throughout the fight. See more »
More Serious Than Usual, But It's Still Roy Rogers
"Eyes of Texas" is more serious than most Roy Rogers movies, with less humor and singing than are found in most of his films, but it's a decent story with some real suspense, and worth watching.
In this one, Roy is a U.S. Marshall who faces a really dangerous opponent, a lawyer who is using violence, deception, and fear in an attempt to take over a family's inheritance, which would also involve shutting down a ranch that is serving as a home for orphaned boys. Roy must risk his life, his job, and his reputation in his attempt to shut down the lawyer's wicked schemes.
The movie also features Andy Devine as the town doctor, who has difficulty deciding whether or not to help Roy out on this one.
The story that follows is mostly convincing and interesting, although with a slightly different feel from many of Roy's movies. There's still plenty of Roy Rogers in it, enough to satisfy any of his fans.
