Editorial Reviews

Roy Rogers meets up with a western writer who he despises because he resents her writing style. But, together they team up to break a silver smuggling gang across the Mexican border. Meanwhile, one of Roy's friends is being hunted by Scotland Yard, but not for the reasons they suspect. One of the best action-packed Rogers films.

4.0 out of 5 stars " 'Atta boy, Roy!" March 7, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Sturdy Grade B western fun starring Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, Trigger, and the whole gang. Gravelly voiced Andy Devine is the comedy relief sheriff. ("Aw, Roy! You didn't have to do that!"). Bob Nolan and the Sons of the Pioneers sing as they ride along the trail. I mean, what else do you want in a western movie? Roy is a border investigator, and Dale is a visiting western novelist. An inscription on the mission bells of San Angelo carries the clue to a lost silver mine. A gang of smugglers committing murder and mayhem along the Mexican-U.S. border have their own dastardly plans for the mine's valuable silver-ore.
This movie is a cut above the typical Roy Rogers western musical revue. There are occasional musical numbers, but they are not obnoxiously intrusive. Hard-riding, two-fisted action is stressed instead. In fact, the movie was criticized in 1947 for being too violent. There is one scene, for example, that shows an outnumbered Roy getting beat to a non-bloody pulp. Now, when was the last time you recall RR losing a fistfight? This movie is good fun for those raised on a steady diet of TV and movie westerns filled with black-hearted villains and roaring six-guns. The movie has one sterling example of immortal dialogue. As Roy socks one of the bad guys, Dale urges him on with the classic line, " 'Atta boy, Roy!" Probably the most succinctly cogent summary one can give of this movie. Nostalgia buffs can nestle in and enjoy this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comments on Bells of San Angelo February 9, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The visual (including color) and sound quality of this video are very good. This full length color version of Bells of San Angelo, which was the second of 19 Trucolor films released by Republic, is highly recommended for Roy Rogers'collectors. It co-stars Dale Evans and Andy Devine (who took "Gabby" Hayes place in the series). This was the last appearance of Dale Evans until her return in Sussana Pass, a later entry in the Trucolor series. Jane Frazee replaced her for several Rogers' Trucolor films. In a post World War II attempt to bring more realism to the Roger's films, Bells of San Angelo includes a segment in which Roy takes a savage beating. Such scenes were a trademark of director William Witney who took over the series in mid 1946.

Format:Amazon Instant Video
A great movie staring Roy Rogers. While I don't know of one of his I didn't enjoy this was one of my favorite. Definitely a good watch if you're in the mood for a Western.
