This link has a great story about a Roy Rogers movie and a local girl.
We watched Roy Rogers on TV every chance we got. I think his movie career was no longer as significant in the 1950s.
My wife Chris and I took a good friend to the Roy Rogers Museum (now closed) in Branson, Missouri. We heard Roy's son and grandson sing. When the grandson sang, it was eerily like a young Roy Rogers.
Chris has always been a Roy Rogers fan. She had a pet parakeet named Roy Rogers, who could almost say the Lord's Prayer, or at least start it.
To impress her at Augustana College, I sang "Happy Trails to You" when I left her at the Andreen dorm.
