Roy, Dale, and the Gypsies
2 June 2011 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

You would think that with a film entitled Along The Navajo Trail this western might have something to do with Indians. Nary an Indian will be seen in this modern western where Roy Rogers is an undercover US Marshal investigating the killing of one of his colleagues.

That colleague was investigating a series of bad breaks that seem to be happening to Dale Evans and her father Sam Flint on their ranch. No one can figure out who could be plotting against them or what they would want on the ranch it having no mineral value of any kind.

Along for the ride are Gabby Hayes as the Flint/Evans foreman and a clan of gypsies headed by chief Nestor Paiva and his most fetching daughter Estelita Rodriguez. Some really good scenes are involving Paiva and Gabby as Paiva gives some credence to the ethnic stereotyping of gypsies being really shrewd traders and downright cheats. In fact that last gag on Gabby involves a federal crime. That might have carried a joke too far.

Bob Nolan and the Sons of the Pioneers aid Roy in singing Nolan's own composition Cool Water and Roy and Dale sing Along The Navajo Trail which was having a real burst of popularity with the best selling record that Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters made of it. And there's a really nice car chase scene, more typical of today's films where the villain meets a bad end.

Lot's of reasons for folks of all ages to like Along The Navajo Trail.
