Overview

Hot on the heels of Frontier Pony Express came the equally exciting Roy Rogers vehicle Rough Riders' Roundup. In the first film, Rogers was an express rider during the Civil War era; in the second, he's a veteran of the Spanish American war (ubiquitous fellow, isn't he?) With several of his fellow Rough Riders, Rogers joins the Texas border patrol, where he almost immediately clashes with a villain named Arizona (William Pawley). While maintaining a respectable facade, Arizona and his minions rob the stagecoaches and express offices, divesting the local prospectors of their hard-earned gold. With the help of grizzled old sidekick Rusty (Raymond Hatton)-not to mention the rest of the Rough Riders-Rogers crushes Arizona's operation once and for all. The film boasts two leading ladies: Rogers' usual vis-a-vis Mary Hart, and former silent star Dorothy Sebastian, here making a comeback attempt.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
There is a rather incongruous moment 20 minutes or so into Rough Riders' Roundup where a jailed Roy Rogers serenades cell-mate Mary Hart (aka Lynne Roberts with "Here on the Range With You.") Neither Roy nor Miss Hart seem terribly worried about their predicament and, sure enough, manage to get out of jail in time to perform the round-up of the title. Typical of the laid-back attitude of this Western is the ending where Roy, instead of the obligatory kiss, merely receives a handshake from Hart for his efforts. Rough Riders' Roundup was filmed by Republic Pictures at the ghost town of Ryolite, NV, and remains a pleasant enough early Rogers series entry.
