The print shown on Turner Classic Movies, from Peter Rodgers Organization, is undoubtedly an old 16mm print made for the home movie market before being sold to television in the early 1950s. The tip-off is on the Republic Pictures logo and the opening title card over which a black bar has been superimposed on the print covering what must have been the words "In Trucolor". In 1952 it was cut to 54 minutes for the television market and distributed by Hollywood Television Service, whose logo then replaced Republic Pictures' on the opening and closing of all its prints; if this were a print made for television it would have those earmarks. The commercially available VHS tapes are also B&W and possibly from the same source, if complete, or else from the television print source, if incomplete. Television prints were all both edited and in black and white. The version shown on the Western Channel is the shorter, television version. See more »
Early in the picture, when Roy sits on Candy Martin's suitcase to help get it closed, there are pieces of clothing sticking out the side. However when the suitcase is finally closed and latched, no clothing is visible. See more »
[Roy reads from the paper he has picked up]
"Your eyes are like deep desert wells, with sparks from silver stars above. / Your voice is sweet as mission bells, your skin is like a marble dove." Don't ever fall in love, Trigger; that's what it does to you.

The print shown on Turner Classic Movies is undoubtedly an old 16 print made especially for TV in the early decades of television. (TV was B&W for those decades and the machines used to broadcast them were 16 mm). The tip-off is on the opening title card a black bar has been superimposed on the print covering what must have been the words 'In Color' or 'In Trucolor'. The commercially available VHS tapes are also B&W and possibly from the same source. See more »
A Rogers oddity since he shares action and songs with Mexican leading man Tito Guizar. It's still a good horse opera as long as you don't try to figure out the plot, which has to compete with two love stories. Frazee makes a charming substitute for Dale Evans, but Estelita acts like she's had at least one hot tamale too many. There's plenty of action and some good hard riding from Roy and Trigger. Plus solid comedy relief from the one-and-only Andy Devine, along with A-list villianry from the jut-jawed Charles McGraw. Then too, it's easy to see why the likable Guizar was so popular south of the border. Still, I'm a bit puzzled by the odd pairing of the two leading men—was Republic trying a different formula for Roy's Saturday matinees. Oh well, whatever, it's still a lively musical western of the sort they don't make anymore.
