Roy Tries Film Noir (Sort Of)
18 May 2010 | by FightingWesternerSee all my reviews

A ruthless gold miner blows his partner, only to discover that the mine he killed for is useless. He then squanders the trust-fund meant for the dead man's daughter and attempts to replace the funds by stealing Roy Roger's cattle.

Coming near the end of Roy's career as a Saturday matinée star (and TV re-launch), Night Time In Nevada is more violent and a bit more hard-boiled than previous films. The opening scene is a first-person murder confession, the subsequent killing of the train conductor pretty cold-blooded, and the climax full of people getting shot!

Villain Grant Withers is one really mean hombre! Walking and talking like a B-movie Broderick Crawford, he gives a great, nasty performance.

Comedic elements are down-played and Dale Evans nowhere to be found. In the edited version, Roy nor Bob Nolan and The Sons Of The Pioneers get a chance to sing! All of this, along with the edited version being black and white instead of color, contribute to the somewhat darker tone of the film.

Recommended.
