Good to see Dale and Roy, but........

This movie is a little misleading. The run time is listed as 63 minutes. And 63 minutes is the original version run time.
However the actual run time of the movie is 51 minutes. There is a pre and post movie interview with Dale, Roy, and Dusty which makes up the rest of the run time. Now seeing them is worth the money I paid for the movie, but I was after a full length film.
I have been told that all the Happy Trails have the edited versions of Roy's movies. I'm not sure this is true...I've only bought this one.

“I ain’t excited, I’m mad!”
A whole lot of robbery takes place in this movie, starting with a train robbery then moving onto a bank robbery. Naturally, the local robber Jesse James is blamed for everything, this is what comes of having a bad reputation. Roy Rogers show up, eventually, to take charge of the matter. He pretends to be an outlaw and with Gabby as his sidekick they try to find the whereabouts of the money stolen in a recent bank robbery. Gabby has a vested interest in this robbery as a lot of the money stolen was his. Call it a conflict of interest. Of course Roy sings, sings and plays the organ as well, how versatile. He can’t let the day end without a tune of some sort.

Interesting as a cultural history of the 1930's
A Great Depression morality tale, wherein the outlaws are really good boys who love their mother, and the capitalists and banker are really black-hearted crooks who prey on the innocent. I'd give it one star for its sheer tedium but a very youthful Roy and Trigger look terrific and who doesn't like Gabby Hayes? As usual in these old oaters, the horseriding is spectacular. Roy has one love song, while playing the pump organ. The movie inspired me to look up the history of the James gang to find out what they were actually like.
