available at present. Keep up the good work Lions Gate!
is my Grandkids favorite "Roy" movie. They want to watch this one over and over. It's more popular than Shrek at my house.
One might think that I was one of Roy's biggest fans. Not so. Back in the day Hopalong Cassidy, Gene Autry, Johnny Mack Brown, Ken Maynard etc.were much preferred over Roy. Nevertheless an appreciation has evolved over time. Roy's family values and clean cut image are certainly scarce in today's world. He also looked the part of a cowboy hero: slim/ trim and athletic looking no matter what age he became. That is not the case with the group above save William (Hopalong Cassidy) Boyd.I forgot to mention John Wayne. He too is in that group with the middle age spread. Another selling point of Roy Rogers is Dale Evans. She was able to gain the attention of any cowboy or cowboy fan. And of course there is Trigger, Pat Brady and most importantly Gabby Hayes.
If you want to feel young again this film is a good place to start that journey.
As for the film itself, I've seen better Roy Rogers films, and I've seen worse. There was only one song in the film. I found the lack of song welcome, as I'm not a fan of that element of Roy Rogers/Dale Evans films, but some will find that a detractor. The story was rushed feeling, but one can only put that down to a slightly more than an hour run time, only so much story/character development can occur. It IS uncut! Which is a big plus for the viewer, we're not presented with lines and actions which have no context in light of cut scenes and dialogue!
Overall, I'm not pleased with this release, but I'm (sometimes overly) picky when it comes to picture and audio quality. Your experience may vary.

Definitely for the Roy Rogers fan. If you watched black and white cowboy movies on tv in the 50's, this is for you.Published 15 months ago by LR
Good old-fashioned fun. Dale Evans at her cute, feisty best. Pat Brady at his goofiest. Villains at their dirtiest and the original Sons of the Pioneers. What's not to like?Published 17 months ago by Michael R. Florey
Takes me back to my childhood and going to the Saturday morning movies for 15 cents. Loved these cowboy movies and still, especially those in color.Published 23 months ago by RDP
