Oh, another one of the scary R-D situations I love is the climax of Bells of San Angelo. That scene was Roy and Dale at their best. I really like the whole thing about Dale’s book, and the way Roy and Dale work together to fool the bad guys—and Cookie, incidentally!

Hey, another really good "situation" is the one from Don't Fence Me In where Roy's got himself and Dale hiding under the bed when Anson comes into his room. That's good and spooky

There sure are alot of great action scenes in RR movies! Some of my favorites are in Bells of San Angelo and Under California Stars!
Hot Heads and Cold Hearts never solved anything.

Bells of San Angelo is a good one for action sequences. Two big fights, some chases (I think. I haven't seen that movie in a while) and the hunting party.

I have a question, and it's not a trivia question. I read somewhere that Roy Barcroft and RR had three famous fights, and one was in Springtime in the Sierras. What movies were the other two it? Anybody who can help me has my thanks!

You're right about that whip-fight in the end of North of the Great Divide. That's really
something else! And very different! Doesn't Jack Lambart give you the creeps?

Roy has a fight with Roy Barcroft in Sunset in Eldorado too. Speaking of which, I was thinking
about it, and Roy Barcroft looks sorta good shot, rather better knocked out, and best dead!
At least that's what I think!

You will listen to me. Listen! The Bretheren will still be looking to us, the Black Pearl, to lead. And what will they see? Frightened bilge rats aboard a derelict ship? No! No, they will see free men and freedom! And what the enemy will see is the flash of our cannons! They will hear the ring of our swords and they will know what we can do. By the sweat of our brows, and the strength of our backs, and the courage of our hearts. Gentlemen, hoist the colors.

Maybe the scriptwriter was watching Lash Larue and decided to add a whip fight in. Was Penny Edwards in North of the Great Divide more than in the cut verision?

Who's Lash Larue?

Penny Edwards isn't in the uncut version a whole lot, but more than in Heart of the Rockies.
If she wasn't in yours much then I'd say yes.

I couldn't say for sure 'cause I haven't seen the cut version! By the way, isn't the color
in that one something else?

Lash Larue was a movie cowboy who used whip. I think the colour was good. I think that movie's really cool because it had Canada in it, and Mounties. Thanks.

Sort of, though it's on the other side of the country and I think I live closer to you than to where the movie took place.

If you live in Onterio I think that you're just about strait above us. We live in the
center of WI about an hour and a half from Lake Supperiour. Yeah, it was the other
end of the country, British Columbia to be exact. Well, considering the size of British
Columbia it's not really that exact!!!!!

That must be in the uncut verison. Where does it happen? (in relation to the cut movie)


Oh, you haven't watched the uncut version of Don't Fence Me In? Oh, you've got to!! I just watched it not too long ago--and I can't believe what I've been missing! There were a couple of bleeps that I noticed in the cut version, unexplained incidents and comments and stuff, but nothing too big--so I thought I wasn't missing too much. That couldn't be farther from the truth! I'll go over what happens.

First of all, there are a couple of scenes missing near the beginning, where Roy and the SOP play a couple of songs. Nothing too big. The big stuff happens right after Dale figures out that Gabby is Wildcat Kelly. The next scene after that takes place inside the ranch house. Roy is singing Don't Fence Me In with the Pioneers, and he's giving Dale rather supirior looks, because she keeps rolling her eyes about the music. Then, she finally decides he's too busy to keep tabs on her, and goes hightailin' it up to Gabby's room. Roy, however, does see her go up there and he must be suspicious, because his grin gets wiped off awful fast and after a few minutes, he puts his guitar down and goes after her. However, in between all this, Dale has managed to find Gabby's bible and find the note from Roy's dad--and take a picture of it. She's about to go back out of his room when she sees Roy coming, gets the most horrified look on her face, and dives back in the room.

There's no place to hide--but this is Dale Evans, remember. She doesn't take no for an answer. She decides to hide UNDER THE BEARSKIN RUG! It might have worked, too, except--sadly--she forgot her high heels, which stick out at the end. Roy comes in and sees them, and gets a VERY interesting look on his face--then the scene ends.

The next scene is the one where Dale's taking the shots of Gabby, and the movie proceeds normally along from that point--all th way up to the point where Roy and the Pioneers kick Dale out after she developes the pictures. (That was pretty dumb, by the way--Roy ought to have figured out by then that that wouldn't get rid of Dale!) She goes out, gets that I-got-an-idea-and-you'd-better-watch-out-MR-Rogers! look on, and the scene switches back to Roy and the Pioneers. They decide they need to get a job at the Westward Ho, so they call a radio guy from New York and he gets the the job.

The next scene is at the Westward Ho, and Roy and the SOP are singing. Halfway through the song, Roy sees a flashblub explode, and gets a pretty sick look on his face. Over in the corner, waltzing along with a smug look on her face, is none other than Dale. After finishing his song, Roy goes over and corrals her and proceeds to give her a lecture--which she twists up so much that he ends on the bottom every time. The dialogue here is hysterical--Dale tells Roy that she's going to get trick Anson into firing off his gun so she can get a sample bullet, and he says he doesn't want to "spoil her snake-charming act". That's exactly what it's all like.

Finally, they both agree that they need to search Anson's room for the missing gun--except they don't agree on who's going to do it. Roy wants Dale to get her nose out of his business and she thinks it's much too interesting to do that. About then, Roy gets a really grim look on his face, grabs Dale, and drags her over in front of the audience.

"This character thinks she can sing," he announces. "Want to hear her?"

The answer of course is yes, and so the band starts getting ready. Looking very satisfied with himself, Roy goes off and leans against a pillar. Obviously he doesn't think Dale can sing, and that she's going to make a fool of herself. Boy does he get surprised.

Dale gives him a very sweet look and then--her nose in the air the whole time--starts to sing A Kiss Goodnight. That knocks Roy off his high horse in a hurry. Looking extremely flattened, he starts thinking up a new way to get Dale out of his way. Then he starts to grin, and disappears backstage. The next part is hysterical--two acrobats come out from backstage and start swinging Dale around! She's trying to smile at the audience and glare at the acrobats at the same time, and the whole scene is unbelivably funny.

Satisfied that Dale's taken care of, Roy goes flying up to Anson's room and starts to search it. He doesn't get very far, though. Dale finally gets away from the acrobats and comes racing up the Anson's room herself, and tried to get inside. Roy hears her fumbling at the lock, thinks she's Anson, and grabs up a vase. Dale comes into the dark room about then--and Roy whacks her over the head. She goes down like a log. Roy clicks on the light then, and practicaly goes into hystertics when he sees who he hit. He pciks her up and tries to wake her up, but no success. About then Anson suddenly comes up to his room. Poor Roy, who's going slightly haywire by now, hears him coming. There's no time to get out of the room, she he stuffs Dale under the bed and dives under after her. Anson comes in for a little bit but doesn't see then, and then goes out. Roy pulls Dale out from the bed then and starts begging her to wake up. Nothing works, she's out like a log. Finally, he says, "Oh, I'm sorry I clobbered you--it was for your own good! I can't understand how such a little jughead can be so nice--some of the time. One minute I want to take a poke at your pretty little face, and then next minute--" He stops then, and looks down at her. "I guess this is the next minute," he says softly, and gives Dale a little kiss on his cheek. Instantly--of course!!--her eyes pop open.

"Why didn't you do that in the first place?" she coos. "That's a sure way to keep me quiet."

Roy looks more disgusted than I've ever seen him, and after informing her just what he thinks, he throws her down onto the sofa and stomps out--as Dale grins after him.

The next cut scene takes place right after that--Roy, Dale, and the SOP ride out to Gabby's hideout to set up the plan to scare Anson. Then the movie resumes as normal--except for one thing. After everything takes place and Roy and Dale are singing Don't Fence Me In up on stage, Gabby picks up Dale's camera which has somehow materialized on the table. He takes a shot of Roy and Dale and turns to the governor. "There ye are, Gov," he says. Now that where the CUT version ends, but in the uncut version he adds, "That's my last shot."

Well, there's mostly what happens. You've just got to try to get the uncut version--it's available through the library. If for some reason you can't get it, PM me and we'll set thongs up so I can send my copy to you so you can see it. It's just too good to miss!

(If any other rest of your haven't seen it and don't have any way to, PM me as well and I'll try to work it out for you.)

May God keep you smilin' down a million happy trails!

It sounds good! Thanks for telling me about it! I think it would be fun to trade movies, but I don't think it'd be possible. Oh well! It sounds so good! At least I know what'll happen-it eases the waiting that I have to do to 'til I see it!

Oh yes, I found where you live in the Atlas RRfan! It's so cool to see where you live! If you want to find me, look for Ottawa and I'm close by there!

Oh yes, one of the bad guys in North of the Great Divide-the second in command, really reminds me of someone I know-fortunately the guy I know is a good guy.
