Saddle up for this action-packed assortment of shoot-‘em-ups and songs of the sagebrush starring Roy Rogers – the King of the Cowboys!! Here are 25 full-length western features` on 5 DVDs!

Catch Roy and the whole gang – George "Gabby" Hayes, Dale Evans, Smiley Burnette, and Trigger ("The Smartest Horse in the Movies"). Along the way, such favorites as John Carradine, Gale Storm, and Clayton Moore make appearances. Some titles appear on DVD for the first time!

Disc One

*WALL STREET COWBOY (1939) – Roy ventures to New York to try and raise money for the mortgage on his ranch – which happens to be sitting on top of a large deposit of a rare and valuable mineral! Gabby Hayes and Raymond Hatton (San Quentin) co-star and future star George Montgomery (Roxie Hart) is a cowhand.

THE ARIZONA KID (1939) – During the Civil War, Roy and Gabby become Confederate scouts to try and get rid of a vicious outlaw gang. Dorothy Sebastian – former wife of William "Hopalong Cassidy" Boyd – plays the girlfriend of the outlaws’ leader (songwriter Stuart Hamblen).

DAYS OF JESSE JAMES (1939) – Roy goes undercover as a member of the James gang in order to get to the bottom of a series of bank robberies. Don "Red" Barry (The Purple Heart) plays Jesse James, while Glenn Strange (House of Frankenstein) is Cole Younger.

THE RANGER AND THE LADY (1940) – While Sam Houston (Davison Clark of Reap the Wild Wind) is in Washington, trying to get Texas admitted to the Union, Texas Ranger Roy must deal with Houston’s scheming assistant (Henry Brandon from March of the Wooden Soldiers), who is unfairly taxing Texans.

WEST OF THE BADLANDS (1940) – In an unintentional foreshadowing of The Fugitive, Roy plays a young doctor on the run from the law, falsely accused of a horrible crime. Popular character actor Joe Sawyer (The Roaring Twenties) is the ruthless leader of an outlaw gang.

Disc Two

YOUNG BILL HICKOK (1940) – Roy in the title role as the legendary lawman, entrusted with guarding a shipment of gold. Along the way, he gets mixed up with Calamity Jane (Sally Payne, who played Belle Starr opposite Roy the following year in Robin Hood of the Pecos).

YOUNG BUFFALO BILL (1940) – Once again, Roy plays a real-life (though highly fictionalized) western legend. Here, he and Gabby fight off a band of Indians while trying to straighten out a Spanish land grant in New Mexico. Pauline Moore (Young Mr. Lincoln) is the lovely damsel in distress.

BAD MAN OF DEADWOOD (1941) – Roy and Gabby try to restore law and order to the town of Deadwood, which is currently in the evil clutches of a tough gang leader (Hal Taliaferro of Red River). Cinema veteran Monte Blue (Orphans of the Storm) plays the sheriff.

ROBIN HOOD OF THE PECOS (1941) – Roy is a former Confederate soldier who has become a sort of Western Robin Hood and winds up becoming sheriff as he battles corrupt carpetbaggers. Cyrus Kendall (Crime School) is the main bad guy.

SHERIFF OF TOMBSTONE (1941) – In a change of pace, Gabby plays a judge who helps Roy clear his name after being mistaken for a ruthless gunslinger. Addison Richards (Boys Town) is Tombstone’s corrupt mayor.

Disc Three

*HEART OF THE GOLDEN WEST (1942) – Roy, Gabby, Frog Millhouse (Smiley Burnette) and the Sons of the Pioneers help a group of ranchers who are being unjustly taxed for transporting their cattle. To circumvent the tax, Roy convinces an old riverboat captain (Walter Catlett of Bringing Up Baby) to let the cows ride down the river.

KING OF THE COWBOYS (1943) – Roy goes undercover to stop a gang of saboteurs who have been blowing up government warehouses to aid the Axis powers during World War II. Russell Hicks (The Bank Dick) plays the governor of Texas and Peggy Moran (The Mummy’s Hand) is the damsel in distress.

*SILVER SPURS (1943) – Roy comes to the aid of a young widow who is being swindled out of her ranch by an unscrupulous opportunist (John Carradine of The Grapes of Wrath). Jerome Cowan (The Maltese Falcon) also appears and Trigger really gets a chance to strut his stuff in this one.

THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS (1944) – Roy goes undercover as an insurance investigator to solve a payroll robbery in this murder-mystery change-of-pace story. Dale Evans, in one of her first roles opposite Roy, plays the daughter of an escaped convict!

Disc Four

*HOME IN OKLAHOMA (1946) – Roy and Dale - in a sort of Western version of Tracy and Hepburn - are rival reporters trying to beat each other in getting the scoop on the murder of a millionaire rancher. Frank Reicher (Captain Englehorn in King Kong) appears as a lawyer.

MY PAL TRIGGER (1946) – Roy is unjustly blamed in the shooting death of Gabby’s horse. Popular character actor Jack Holt (San Francisco) is the actual shooter. This film was reportedly a personal favorite of Roy’s.

ROLL ON TEXAS MOON (1946) – Roy tries to stop a vicious range war between sheepherders and cattle ranchers that has been intentionally started by an unscrupulous businessman (Dennis Hoey, better known as Inspector Lestrade in the Sherlock Holmes series).

*APACHE ROSE (1947) – Roy is an oil prospector whose attempts to gain the drilling rights to a prize piece of land are thwarted by a gang of ruthless gamblers who operate from an offshore boat. George Meeker (The Roaring Twenties) leads the gambling gang.

THE BELLS OF SAN ANGELO (1947) – Roy is a border guard who suspects (correctly) that is smuggling silver out of a Mexican mine and "planting" it in his own worthless silver mine! John McGuire (Sands of Iwo Jima) is the culprit, and movie favorite Andy Devine (Stagecoach) plays the sheriff!

Disc Five

SPRINGTIME IN THE SIERRAS (1947) – Roy tries to stop a gang of poachers from killing deer in violation of local hunting regulations and winds up locking horns with the leader of the gang – who happens to be a very attractive woman (Stephanie Bachelor from Lady of Burlesque). Once again, Andy Devine plays the sheriff, and old timer Chester Conklin plays an Old Timer.

THE GAY RANCHERO (1948) – Sheriff Roy tries to stop a gang of crooks from taking over an airport by sabotaging the planes. Crooner Tito Guizar (Mexico’s version of the singing cowboy) plays an ex-bullfighter who comes to America to find the girl of his dreams.

GRAND CANYON TRAIL (1948) – A gullible sheriff (Andy Devine again) is duped into investing in a worthless silver mine. Jane Frazee (Buck Privates) is the comic female foil, while Laurel and Hardy nemesis James Finlayson (Way Out West) plays another sheriff.

THE FAR FRONTIER (1948) – Where else can you see Roy Rogers, the Lone Ranger, Annie Oakley and Jingles Jones, all in one movie? That’s because Clayton Moore (The Lone Ranger), Gail Davis (Annie Oakley), and Andy Devine (The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok) join Roy in this timely story about the smuggling of illegals from Mexico into the U.S.

UNDER CALIFORNIA SKIES (1948) – Roy plays singing-cowboy movie star "Roy Rogers" in this "backstage" story about the celebration of Roy’s ten years in movies, spoiled by the sudden kidnapping of Trigger. Child star Michael Chapin (Call Northside 777) is caught up in the danger.
