Among Roy Rogers & William Witney's best!
24 February 2006 | by revranSee all my reviews

Using the age old conflict between cattle ranchers and sheepherders this film shines as one of my top five favorite Roy Rogers films. Dale Evans and George "Gabby" Hayes along with the Son's of the Pioneers join Roy. Another uncredited star in this film is a little lamb with a bow around it's neck and the pet of Dale's character. The first time the lamb sees cattleman Gabby, it falls in love with him. Much to his dismay it chases after him and the scenes of these two together are hilarious. Try to see the uncut version. Any Rogers film that is 55 minutes long has been cut! Hope you enjoy it as much as our family does!
