This was Roy Rogers' first film in Trucolor. However, surviving prints are in black and white. See more »
Immediately after the scene in which Bob's hat is crushed, there is a close-up of Roy in which we catch a glimpse of Bob in the background wearing a perfectly unspoiled hat. Shortly afterward when everyone runs into the hacienda after hearing the shot, his hat is still as good as new. See more »

Roy Rogers fans are likely to appreciate this a lot more
I'm not a huge fan of Roy Rogers, though he has a lovely voice (and Dale Evans was CUTE!!). I don't particularly like musical westerns and singing cowboys (especially Gene Autry). And this is a fairly typical Roy Rogers film. The plot is interesting enough (and the film short enough) to keep one going, but thee films were churned out a mile a minute to keep the public happy and the dollars rolling rolling rolling, so they weren't exactly high on quality. I really didn't like his sidekick Alkali (played by Olin Howlin) which didn't help much. But Roy was good as usual, Trigger was beautiful as usual, Dale Evans was CUTE as usual, but the film didn't live up to others of his, or my expectations.
Overall: I've seen better, I've seen worse. He beats Gene Autry by a mile but I prefer his TV show. Roy Rogers fans will probably like this a whole hell of a lot more...4/10.
