Roy Rogers rides again (and again and again and...)

Listen up, buckaroos: Roy Rogers will honored Aug. 28 with a day-long retrospective on Turner Classic Movies. Among the attractions: Young Bill Hickok, Young Buffalo Bill and Jesse James at Bay, three sagebrush sagas featuring The King of the Cowboys as Wild West legends; Dark Command, Roy's only co-starring stint with John Wayne; and The Cowboy and the Senorita, the 1944 classic that paired Roy for the first time with a lovely leading lady named Dale Evans. The couple remained together for decades, on screen and off, roaming along many happy trails while making sweet music together.

THE GOLDEN STALLION is must see RR ... Roy takes the murder rap for ... Trigger ... QT showed this one at QT5 in austin a while back, and it is obvious that uma thurman (see the bedside props for her daughter in Kill Bill Vol 2) is the spirit of trigger ... berg
