Bells of San Angelo

Set in modern times, Roy Rogers goes up against a gang of criminals smuggling silver across the Mexican border. However, in an unusual plot twist for a cowboy movie, Roy does not outwit the criminals and is instead captured by them. It’s up to local fantasy cowboy novel writer Lee Madison (Evans), whom Roy hates due to her unrealistic depiction of cowboys, to single-handedly rescue Roy and bring the criminals to justice. There is also a subplot where one of Roy’s friends is being hunted by Scotland Yard, but not for the reasons Roy and Lee suspect. One of the best action-packed Rogers films, and a wonderful depiction of Roy’s humble character in his final acceptance of being rescued by a woman.
