A criminal gang, headed by female ringleader Jean Loring (Bachelor), runs a racket where they slaughter game out of season and sell the meat on the black market. Roy becomes involved when his best friend, a game warden, is murdered by Loring's main henchman Matt Wilkes (Barcroft). In his investigation, Roy manages to find the freezer where the meat is kept, just as Wilkes finds him. A famous fight between the two ensues in the freezer, with the good camerawork highlighting the cramped spaced used for the fight.

The reviews here (dated before 2012) are all wrong, this ALPHA video release of "Sprintime..." IS IN COLOR. This is one of the few Alpha Roy Rogers movies that really is in color the way it should be. It is uncut too. So if you want a nice looking uncut color version of this movie this would be it. By the way, the VHS tape of "Sunset In The West" put out by the Republic/Artisian company IS IN COLOR also and it looks beautiful. It's listed incorrectly on the tape box and on Amazon too, but the Republic VHS tape of Roy's "Sunset In The West" IS actually IN COLOR and it looks great. Buy it while you can. Make it a double color feature night of Roy with the Republic VHS tape of "Sunset In The West" and "Springtime In Sierras". Happy Color Trails.

Springtime in the Sierras, 1947 film

The movie begins with riders and horses. A stray fawn is rescued and take to an animal sanctuary. An organized gang of poachers hunts wild game in this area. The meat is sold to the wealthy. It deprives every American of their right to hunt. Bert challenges Roy to a fight. Roy pulls a prank with flash powder. [Out of character?] There is a song by Roy while he plays the guitar. A man shoots a doe in the woods. Roy chases this poacher but loses him in the woods. The game warden catches the gang, but someone catches him! They will make it look like an accident. Roy questions Bert. They sing at the funeral. Roy explains why the death was a murder: the gun was in Foster's right hand. Bert was unhappy with his previous job. Jean plans a celebration on her "Lazy W" ranch; its part of a trick to become a respected citizen. Jean has a pre-war imported rifle, its ammunition is scarce. Roy checks it.

Roy questions Bert about Captain Foster's death. There is a fight. [Impromptu entertainment?] "Never trust a fat man." What do they know about Jean and her friend Matt? A refrigerating plant? Geese, ducks, and venison are worth more than beef. Roy tells his suspicions to Kathy. Roy has a plan to learn more. Like a good confidence man, he manipulates Jean to do what he wants. But does this move fall into Jean's plans? The song "What are you going to do then" reminds us when people had no retirement pension. Roy finds the hidden freezer with venison, Jean and Matt find him. There is another fight, Roy is captured and left in the freezer. A frozen body in the hills will be another accident! Bert left Jean, but is lured back to the ranch. Will they try to make it look like another accident? Can Roy and Bert escape from cold storage? Cookie has a plan too.

75 minute version: Full length film. Absolutely first rate. Perhaps my favorite of any western, ever.

54 minute version: TV edit, done in the 1960's. Cut to run for one hour, with commercials. This is the version usually available nowdays. Not good at all. Important plot developments removed.

The 75 minute version is out there, if you look hard enough.
