Goofs

Even though Roy Rogers portrays two different characters in the picture, he rides his horse Trigger as both men. The most evident example occurs when the outlaws led by Clint Burns arrive to raid Sheriff Gabby Whitaker's ranch. Clint Burns (Roy) arrives and leaves aboard Trigger, and shortly after, Jesse James (Roy's other character) rides up to the ranch also riding Trigger. As Jesse, Roy also rides a different horse at other times. See more »

Rogers's Take On the James Legend is Good Light Entertainment
18 February 2002 | by Snow LeopardSee all my reviews

This different (and improbable) take on the Jesse James legend makes for pretty good light entertainment. Having Roy Rogers in the lead certainly alters the tone considerably, but he carries it off all right. Gabby Hayes and Gale Storm also help out. The story has an angle on James that probably bears little relation to fact, but it's rather creative, and it makes for a plot that moves quickly and holds your attention. As one of Rogers' earlier films, the emphasis is on action, and there is plenty of it. Not a movie to take seriously, but one that makes for an enjoyable hour of viewing.
