Saga Of Death Valley has villain Frank M. Thomas shoot down Lane Chandler in cold blood so that he can gain control of the water Chandler has on his ranch. One witness was left, the younger child of Chandler who grows up to be Don Barry who becomes his number one enforcer.
This western plays a lot like a Warner Brothers gangster feature with Thomas running a real nice protection racket with the ranchers in the valley. That is until the other and older son of Chandler shows up to claim his birthright and settle some scores and that of course is Roy Rogers.
Roy's leading lady is Doris Day, not THE Doris Day, but another actress with the same name who sang not a note with Roy. Can you imagine the nice music that Roy and the other Doris could have made? We might never have heard of Dale Evans who was several years in Roy's future.
Although Saga Of Death Valley has nothing to do with the real Death Valley of alkali, cactus, and borax, the film has a nice plot, good acting and is one of Roy's better early features.
