Roy Rogers and Gabby Hayes settle comfortably into this film, which is one of a successful series. This is a shoot-em up cowboy film about the riders who aid the embattled homesteaders and clean up the territory for decent folk. Enjoyable.

This is one of the early Roy Rogers westerns (from 1940) with Gabby Hayes as Roy's side kick. Roy is an undercover Union officer sent to the Colorado territory to stop a secessionist uprising. Roy, Gabby, Pauline Moore, Milburn Stone, Hal Taliaferro and the rest of the cast do an admirable job, the film is a notch above the average B western being made at the time. Kudos to Republic Pictures.

If you're just looking for a fun ride back to the Hollywood western, this is a good one. Not too long, nor too serious about itself, it is a pleasant trip back in time. And just enough of a "period piece" for a few good peanut gallery comments from the couch.

Colorado, 1940 film

The story starts with a poster asking "Loyal Americans" to "Preserve the Union". Cavalry Captain Mason meets a group of men; he is a Confederate spy who wants to keep Union troops busy so they can't reinforce General Grant. The US Secret Service is asked to solve this problem. Lieutenant Jerry Burke from military intelligence is the man to send there. Gabby joins him, so does a young woman. A robber stops the stage to steal the Army payroll. Jerry is a good shot, he recovers the payroll. Then we learn more about Captain Donald Mason, who gambles. Could an Indian Commissioner sell guns to the Indians? The sheriff pays for not pulling his pistol. Jerry captures Confederate spy. Then he investigates the "Union Preservation League" headquarters and finds evidence of treason. There is a confrontation, and Mason escapes.

Lylah Stanford is sorrowful over her seeming bad luck. Mason has men to back him, he allies with corrupt businessmen and a judge who plan to take the mines and ranches. Guns are sold to the Indians to attack settlers (who raise food). Can this be stopped? Jerry and his men capture the wagon load of rifles and lock up the driver. Mason's men arrive at night to free the prisoners. There is shooting, one man talks about the gang. With this news about Lylah affect Mason? The stage coach is hijacked. [Note the six horses needed for higher altitudes.] A posse is sighted, Mason leaves the coach for a horse. Jerry and the others ride out, then separate. Jerry is shot by Indians, but rescued by Don. Mason has a discussion about leadership with Macklin, their differences are ironed out. Jerry recovers to sing a song, and learns the latest news. Jerry and his men have a rendezvous at Durango, a surprise for Mason and his gang.
