Overview

Roy Rogers saves Dale Evans from being hoodwinked by a rodeo competitor in this pleasant, and pleasantly tuneful, B-Western from Republic Pictures. Due to the mismanagement of old-timer Gabby Whittaker (George "Gabby" Hayes), The Brooks Rodeo is about to be gobbled up by competitor Frank Madden (Richard Powers aka Tom Keene), who also has designs on pretty owner Marjorie Brooks (Evans) herself. But when Gabby hires Roy Rogers and the Sons of the Pioneers as the new headliners, Madden and his henchman Ken Ferguson (Roy Barcroft) are forced to commit a bit of sabotage. With the aid of Trigger, "The Smartest Horse in the Movies," and radio announcer Marty Maizely (Lloyd Corrigan), Roy and Gabby manage to the goods on Ferguson and prevent Marjorie from marrying the sleazy Madden. Featuring early silent screen star Claire Du Brey as Dale Evans' faithful housekeeper, Lights of Old Santa Fe also presents such pleasant musical divertissements as Jack Elliott's title tune, Tim Spencer's "Trigger Hasn't Got a Pretty Figger," "I'm a Happy Guy in My Levi's Britches" and "Cowpoke Polka," and Ricardo Lopez Mendez' "Amor." The latter is performed by Dale Evans in both English and Spanish versions.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
Roy Rogers, Dale Evans and George "Gabby" Hayes made an unbeatable combination when it came to innocuous B-Western entertainment and they were perhaps never better than in this tuneful songfest, which also benefits from the comedy asides by oldtimers Claire DuBrey and Lloyd Corrigan; the smooth acting of villains Richard Powers (formerly Tom Keene) and Roy Barcroft; and the background vocals of Bob Nolan and The Sons of the Pioneers. Even the "Republic Dancing Girls," 12 chorus girls put under contract 1944-1945, join in the festivities, which are nicely balanced with a couple of fairly good chase sequences to satisfy the action fans.
