Movie Reviews

Great Singing. One of Roy's Best.
Reliable Reviews | Carmel Valley, California | 04/22/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

Six good songs by Roy Rogers, Gabby Hayes, and the Sons of the Pioneers with Pat Brady. One of Roy Rogers best because of some priceless songs.

The song, "Mavoureen O'Shea", with, surprise, Gabby Hayes in the lead with a great Irish accent; a song of subtle humor. (I bet this song took more than one take, because Gabby's Irish accent is so convincing, it must have made the other guys laugh.)(A rare glimpse of Roy at the start of this song, breaking character, having a good time).

"Mary Smith is my Irish rose, how much I love her? there's nobody knows. She's happy I know cause she told me today; she'll be changing her name to Mavoureen O'Shea. Ohhhhhh Mavoureen O'Shea, her name sounds better that way. McCarthy is fine and Smith is Ok, but none half so fine as... Mavoureen O'Shea!"

The song, "No Good Son of Gun" is made great by Pat Brady (Take a look at one of the band to Pat's right, breaking character, enjoying Pat's humor). These guys were all great friends in real life. This unique script and these unique songs allow their off-screen, friendship to shine through. They are having a lot of fun. They can't make them like this anymore.

"The Sandman Lullaby" is very relaxing with a little yodeling, a true lullaby.

You are better off purchasing the "Happy Trails Theatre" version at Roy Rogers Dott Comm, which has an added opening and closing, hosted by Roy and Dale years later; they show a home-movie.

The bad guys try to swindle a ranch from the heir. Plenty of action and a little humor. The story is fine and lively. This film is exceptional because of the exceptional songs and some unique opportunities for Roy and the boys' real life fun to shine. (1942). More on Roy Rogers under "comment" button, below.
