Synopsis

On the Old Spanish Trail
With the defection of Gene Autry from the Republic lot, Roy Rogers was truly the King of the Singing Cowboys. In On the Old Spanish Trail, Rogers is for the first time teamed with Latin American singing favorite Tito Guizar. The plot finds Roy and Tito involved with a travelling cowboy tentshow in the modern west. Though there are an abundance of action highlights, the film is lighthearted in nature, as evidenced by the character name of Andy Devine, "Cookie Bullfincher". Rogers and Guizar later costarred with more impressive results in The Gay Ranchero. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Ridin' Down the Canyon
Roy Rogers takes on crooked wartime profiteeers in the musical western Ridin' Down the Canyon. Posing as solid citizens, the crooks spend their evening hours stealing horses from local ranchers, then selling the steeds to the government at exorbitant prices. The head of the bad guys runs a dude ranch where Rogers and his pals (The Sons of the Pioneers) are employed. When Rogers figures out what's what, he sets about to bring the rustlers to justice. There's some piquancy in the fact that the character played by juvenile actor Buzzy Henry is named Bobby Blake; within a few years, the real Bobby Blake (who later grew up to become Robert Blake) would be appearing as Little Beaver in Republic's "Red Ryder" western series. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
