Editorial Reviews

In a time of innocence, his straightforward, all-American cowboy manner made him a beloved international icon. At the height of his fame, Leonard Frank Slye (a.k.a. Roy Rogers) was one of Hollywood's biggest stars. In 1948 alone, his movies sold nearly 100 million tickets. In the 1950s, more than two million children every month bought comic books, breathlessly following the adventures of Roy and his famous golden palomino, Trigger. Now, for the first time, BIOGRAPHY® presents the complete story of the boy from Cincinnati, Ohio, who became the "King of the Cowboys." Home movies, film outtakes, and rare television clips provide a glimpse into Rogers's lightning rise to stardom. From his humble beginnings as a radio singer and guitar player to his place in history as a matinee idol, this is an intimate portrait of ROY ROGERS, quintessential American hero.

My little boy is a Roy Rogers freak, and now that I've watched a few of his movies and after we brought this video home from the library, I can see why. Roy Rogers was a great person, and he is reminiscent of a time of innocence that is so far removed from entertainment in our culture today. I highly recommend this video, you'll find out just about anything you've ever wanted to know about Roy Rogers...my only gripe is that I wish they would update this biography. This was done 2-3 years before Roy died, and before his museum was moved to Branson. There are obviously still plenty of Roy Rogers fans out there, and we'd all like to know how this megastar bid his final "Happy Trails", and where one might visit his grave. Many would probably also like to see an updated bit about the new Branson museum. Roy was is and forever will be THE KING OF THE COWBOYS

If you want to know the Real Roy Rogers and not just the "King of the Cowboys" from the Silver Screen, then this is a MUST for your video library. I had the honor of meeting both Roy and Dale at the Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City and they were two of the most genuine people and just as wholesome as they played on the screen. If you love the Singin' Cowboy and love Roy and Dale then you have to see this wonderful bio.

Mark from Oklahoma!

In this day of trash celebrities, what a wonderful biography of truly wonderful, good, caring people. This DVD is well worth an hour of anyones time, western fan or not. This and the Bill "Hopalong Cassidy" Boyd biography give a glimpse of a world long gone.

I've always loved Roy Rogers and by extension Dale Evans, their radio shows, films, recordings, comics, etc. This is no exception. I don't think I learned anything new here, but I certainly enjoyed watching this DVD.

I had the privilege to meet Mr. Rogers when I was 7 years old in 1956. He taught me what class really is. My father brought me to Madison Square Garden to see the rodeo. He knew the stage manager and took me into the rear of the Garden where Mr. Rogers dressing room was. He was not supposed to be bothered and I could see he was understandingly annoyed. The Stage Manager told him about my having polio (I wore a brace for 12 years). Roy immediately came over to me and put his arm around me. Took a picture (which I still have). If you watch this you will find out that Roy was quite a man. We need more like Roy today.
