Spoilers of the Plains
Roy Rogers enters the atomic age with this sci-fi western directed by serial ace William Witney. Our hero runs a pipeline near a site where Dr. Manning (William Forrest) and his daughter Frankie (Penny Edwards) are experimenting with long-range weather forecasting by using rockets. Enter nasty Gregory Camwell (Ralph Withers) and his crew of thugs, who have in mind quite different uses for the missiles. Aided by Frankie, sidekick Splinters (Gordon Jones), Foy Willing and the Riders of the Purple Sage singing group and Bullet, the dog, Roy is soon knee-deep in a whole new kind of trouble that culminates with a blazing fight to the death on an oil derrick.
