Crossing the Border

Singing cowboy Roy Rogers is a cattle rancher near the Mexican border, and someone is smuggling something into the United States from Mexico . . . no, not cattle . . . no, not guns . . . would you believe people? Heh, my long-dead papa always said that the more things change, the more they stay the same . . . and it still seems to be true today. Not only that, but get this: Today with the revelations from Snowden in Russia, we realize more than ever that there is no expectation of privacy when using a phone or computer or mobile device - for something that resembles privacy one must go where people call 'off the grid' - well, now in this 1948 cowboy movie the outlaw sends messages to his henchmen by using carrier pigeons, because telegraphs and the newfangled telephones cannot be trusted . . . sheesh . . . Déjà vu all over again. It seems that local merchant Newcomb, played by Robert Strange, is smuggling outlaws that have fled the law back into the U.S. and past border patrolman Tom, played by future Lone Ranger tv show star Clayton Moore. Between fistfights with the outlaws Roy sings with the Riders of the Purple Sage, a country western group that had a popular radio program on the West coast and also appeared in several cowboy western movies. Andy Devine joins the story as happy Judge Cookie Bullfincher, and Gail Davis is the obligatory pretty girl in the story. Roy and Dale Evans got married almost exactly one year before this movie premiered, but for some reason or other she was not featured in this adventure. 'Nuff said about the players, and you know that with the King of the Cowboys heading up the action you are in for a good time chasing outlaws and pigeons, so . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
