Dove Review

Westerns were once the favorite shows for families to watch on TV. “The Roy Rogers’ Show” was one that was often watched in our home. This collection of 28 Roy Rodgers older movies are from the years 1939 to 1950. Watch Roy and his horse Trigger along with a variety of his sidekicks like Gabby Hayes and Andy Devine. Then in later movies watch the wonderful Dale Evans. They captured the west with song, comedy and the theory that the “good guy” always wins.

The first movie surprisingly portrays Roy as a robber that was given a second chance by the sheriff (Gene Autry), who needed someone to sing in a local celebration. These movies are filled with music that Roy was so popular for and features the group “The Sons of the Pioneers” that he sang with for many years. There are also songs by some of the female co-stars including the lovely Dale Evans, who became Roy’s wife in 1947.

This series is a collection of black and white movies and Technicolor. Older generations will relive this TV time of the past. Some may remember seeing these at the matinee in the local theater or as an afternoon TV movie. The set contains timeless movies that can be enjoyed by the entire family.

If you are a fan of classic movies, this is a collection you won’t want to miss. They take the viewer into a time when filmmaking was not as realistic as today. In those days, films did not need shoot-out scenes or blood and guts. There were no sex scenes necessary, just good clean entertainment for families to enjoy, young and old alike.

The set will be a great addition to anyone’s collection of classic films, especially if you are a western or Roy Rogers fan. We a proud to award “Roy Rogers: The Ultimate Collection” the “Dove Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
