The Convertible Riding Cowboy and the Notch in the Rifle
This Roy Rogers cowboy adventure takes place in 1943 . . . . Really 1943, complete with the wealthy rancher driving a shiny new 1943 convertible that could kick up the dust even better than a galloping posse.
The Sons of the Pioneers was a cowboy western singing group that Roy Rogers belonged to when he was first hired to be a cowboy movie star. In this adventure they are the ranch hands that help ranch foreman Roy Rogers. The ranch owner has died and the ranch now belongs to his son, a hard-drinking playboy driving the shiny new convertible. Roy and the ranch hands have promised to stay with the playboy cowboy, but Roy is soon fired from his job by the drunken rancher.
When the drunken playboy is killed Roy is framed, and he is suddenly on the run from the Sheriff while trying to clear his name and find the real killer. Two pretty girls from a big eastern newspaper don’t make things any easier. One of the girls has married the drunken rancher only hours before his death and is now the widow-owner of the ranch.
Actress Phyllis Brooks is the leading lady girl reporter who marries the wealthy playboy rancher to get a good newspaper story and then suddenly becomes the widow who owns the ranch. Two years after this movie the model and actress would marry Tolbert Macdonald, who would become a Massachusetts Congressman, serving until his death in 1976.
Tolbert Macdonald may have gotten his passion for politics from his Harvard roommate, John F. Kennedy. They were good friends as well as college roommates. John F. Kennedy was the Godfather to the oldest son of Phyllis Brooks and her husband. Tolbert Macdonald was an usher at John F. Kennedy’s wedding, and was one of the pallbearers at President Kennedy’s funeral.
Now back to our cowboy adventure with King of the Cowboys Roy Rogers and leading lady Phyllis Brooks. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
