November 5, 1911 – July 6, 1998
The Joel McCrea Blogathon is gonna make Roy Rogers’ birthday, November 5, kinda crowded. Roy deserves his own time in the spotlight, so I’m going to bring him up in a couple days early.
There’s something about Roy Rogers that just makes me feel good. As I see it, the cinema hasn’t come up with anything to top the entertainment that can be derived from those later Roy pictures directed by William Witney. That’s as good as it gets.
