Quotes

Roy Barton: What are you going to pay for that wagon with?
Peter 'Junior' Potter Jr.: Ah, a preposition at the end of a sentence, and you split you infinitive. Pretty soon you'll be dangling a participle. Shame on you sir, the school marm will certainly hear about this.

Even better than I expected!
22 August 2001 | by urthmothrSee all my reviews

I had seen Trigger steal the scene - and the blanket - from Hope, and finally got to see the whole movie. What a cast! Bob Hope, Jane Russell, and Roy Rogers. The three stars complement each other, and I'd love to have a copy of a still with the three of them singing together! The movie is a great showcase for Trigger, and Paul E. Burns is great in a Gabby Hayes-like role! Of course, it is not a "politically correct" portrayal of American Indians, but it is typical of its period.
