Enough Action to Make it Worthwhile
2 December 2002 | by Snow LeopardSee all my reviews

While it's probably just average among the many Roy Rogers features, there's enough action in "Grand Canyon Trail" to make it worth watching. The story is pretty thin this time. What there is of it has Roy, Andy Devine, and a spunky but sometimes misguided heroine battling the bad guys over a silver mine, while also having to deal with the usual dull-witted sheriff (played by an old silent comedy favorite, James Finlayson). There's also a supposedly haunted hotel that is mainly played for a few laughs, most of them at the expense of Divine's character. It does not always fit together as well as it could have, but there is plenty of action, plus a couple of songs, and it has pretty much everything you would expect from one of Rogers's movies.
