Read an Excerpt
A stunning young woman in a long, white gown strolled out onto a balcony to take in the full moon of a clear, California sky. Soft music drifted out of the spacious hacienda behind her and mixed with the light breeze that stirred her brown mane. A handsome cowboy followed after the striking lady, singing to her about the night, the stars and love. She joined him in song, every verse echoing her sentiments about the romantic celluloid moment they found themselves in.
It was a sweet introduction for the two musical actors. Portraying a bashful, but courageous cowhand and an independent damsel in distress, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans lit up the screen in the Republic feature, The Cowboy and the Senorita. It was the first film the two appeared in together, one that marked the start of a fifty-six year partnership, both professionally and personally.
Roy and Dale made thirty-two more movies together, produced and starred in a ten-year, hit television series, raised nine children and enjoyed fifty-two years of marital bliss.
The Cowboy and the Senorita, released in 1944, made their names and lives inseparable.
