Quotes

[first lines]
Roy Rogers: Golden horses - that's what they call the palominos. And palominos have quite a history. You know, the history of my own palomino began right here at this ranch. If I hadn't-a gone through that gate a few years back, I'd never have gotten my pal, Trigger.

The story about a man and his love for a horse (no snickering, please).
26 January 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

In this film, Roy Rogers is trying to get a grouchy guy, Gabby Kendrick (Gabby Hayes), to provide stud services for Roy's horse. Hmmmm....let me rephrase that. Roy is trying to breed his horse with Gabby's horse. But Gabby won't hear of it and is a total jerk.

Later, someone kills Gabby's prize horse and Roy is blamed for it. He didn't do it, of course, and it's pretty obvious that Scoville (Jack Holt) is behind it. But no one knows this until the end of the film--and in the meantime, Roy is forced, for some time, to hide from the law. Naturally, by the end of the film everything has worked out--and Roy has his new prize horsie, Trigger.

This is a rather amiable Roy Rogers film. While the songs are completely ordinary, the plot is different and enjoyable. Not exactly deep or lasting entertainment but pretty nice stuff to pass the time.
