| A dangerous foe
One of the nastiest villains that Roy Rogers ever tangled with was played by Grant Withers in Night Time In Nevada. He kills three of his partners during the course of this film.

The first one was his partner in a mine played by Jim Nolan and told to another partner in flashback. George M. Carleton is your basic shyster attorney and they plot to do Nolan's now grown daughter Adele Mara out of a trust fund that Nolan set up for her and which lawyer Carleton has been bilking over the years.

Another murder, that of beloved train engineer Joseph Crehan, brings Roy Rogers, Andy Devine and the Sons Of The Pioneers into the mix. With Mara and girlfriend Elaine Edwards now arrived the bad guys are of course brought to justice.

Other than the classic Big Rock Candy Mountain there are no really good songs in this Roy Rogers film. But that's made up for in the action which comes fast and furious. The climax is well staged with Roy holding off the bad guys on a moving train.

Roy's Saturday matinée kid crowd definitely loved this one.
