I thought it would be nice to watch Roy Roger's color westerns. I dislike singing cowboys as a rule, but Roy Rogers always cheered me up, and his films were short enough at roughly 60 minutes to not overstay their welcome. Also, he could sing, whereas the other guy couldn't, and he had the Sons of the Pioneers to join in harmony from time to time. Then I started reading the customer reviews at amazon, and the idea of gathering his color films in uncut form is not so simple. For one thing, the reviews of different DVD and VHS editions are jumbled together, and you can't always tell which edition is being commented on for quality, color, and completeness. For another, the listed running times may not be accurate, especially when in conflict with customer reviews. According to the imdb, Roy Rogers made 19 western musicals at Republic in the Trucolor process. The films with correct running times are: 1950 Trail of Robin Hood -- 67m 1950 North of the Great Divide -- 67 minutes 1950 Sunset In the West -- 67m 1950 Trigger, Jr -- 68m 1950 Twilight of the Sierras -- 67m 1950 The Bells of Coronado -- 67m 1949 The Golden Stallion -- 67m 1949 Down Dakota Way -- 67m 1949 Susanna Pass -- 67m 1948 The Far Frontier -- 67m 1948 Grand Canyon Trail -- 67m 1948 Night Time In Nevada -- 67m 1948 Eyes of Texas -- 70m 1948 Under California Stars -- 70m 1948 The Gay Ranchero -- 72m 1947 On the Old Spanish Trail -- 75m TruColor / 57m cut Westerns Channel print / 54m cut TV print 1947 Springtime In the Sierras -- 75m 1947 The Bells of San Angelo -- 78m 1947 Apache Rose -- 75m and 1946 Out California Way -- cameo in Monte Hale film -- 67m / 54m cut I have read that all of the above were cut down to 54 minutes for television airings, and these shortened versions appear in most if not all public domain editions and collections, and sometimes in authorized editions. The cuts were usually to the songs. Also, not all of Roy's Trucolor films survive in color. Some only survive in black and white. I confess I'm looking for a short-cut. I don't want to work at finding the best editions, I just want to click on "Buy It Now" and then watch 'em at my convenience. A couple of customers on amazon specified that Republic / Artisan's DVD of The Bells of Coronado (1950) was complete at 67 minutes with all songs intact and in excellent color, so I bought that. But the reports of Roy's other Trucolor films in their various editions are confusing. The authorized "Happy Trails Theater" editions from Good Times Video is a case in point. They seem to have released almost all of the Trucolor titles, but whether or not they are actually in color and uncut is anything but clear. So, which editions are complete, uncut, good quality transfers in reasonably good color? Which editions should I buy? is there perhaps a Roy Rogers fan at HTF who has sorted this out?
