| Roy Goes Undercover
U.S. Marshall Roy Rogers goes undercover to investigate a string of shootings and the murder of a Cattleman's Association Operative on the Alastair Ranch, owned by Breck Alastair and his daughter Lorry (Sam Flint and Dale Evans). Roy soon uncovers a land swindle plot masterminded by J. Richard Bentley and his no-account henchman Rusty Channing (Douglas Fowley and Roy Barcroft)to grab the ranch for an oil pipeline right-of-way. With the help of Gabby Whitaker (Hayes) and an itinerant band of gypsies Roy sets to bring the scalawags to justice.

"Along the Navajo Trail" is directed by Frank McDonald who helmed a handful of Roy's Movies between the Joseph Kane years and the later William Whitney films. McDonald began to transition Roy's movies from the World War II years musical extravaganzas to more of the automobile-age western format, though this one still features Roy singing several tunes, gone are the large scale song and dance numbers. Additionally The Son's of the Pioneers sing their iconic classic Cool Water. The following year McDonald would direct what many fans consider Roy's best movie My Pal Trigger.

While Navajo Trail is a pretty average effort, most of Roy's fans and B-Western fans in general, will enjoy this one. 66 minutes of decent entertainment.
