Song of Texas (1943)



Reviews and Comments

There can't have been a nicer character in western movies than Roy Rogers, as played by himself, in the dozens of low budget westerns he made throughout the forties. He's too good to be true, really, but he's completely convincing, probably because he seemed to be like that in real life.

Song of Texas is another in the long series of films he did for Republic PIctures. True to the formula, there are some fine western songs, moments of comedy, and action in the desert. The story involves a down-and-out wagon racer and the deed to a key plot of land. It is marred by not one but two frustratingly idiotic plot developments, but all ends well with a spectacular wagon race climax.
