I think it’s about time that someone started a Favorite Dale Era poll. Goodness knows we’ve run ones on practically everything else! So here goes.

My favorite era of Dale is definitely the Roy Rogers Show. To me, she was closest to her real personality in there. And she was able to play the kinda roles she worked best in—the funny, witty, slightly tough but also very gentle Texas-drawlin’ ranch gal. This era just takes the lead though, over the Apache Rose to Pals of the Golden West era. In my opinion, that was almost as good as the Roy Rogers Show!!

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

The Utah to Heldorado era. (I thought we had a poll like this before... is it still out there?)
Hot Heads and Cold Hearts never solved anything.

Ok. My mistake! I guess I like that era the best, because she seemed to be more "spunky" in them. Not that her role wasn't great in the others! I just prefer the style of the movie then. (With Gabby and Sons of the Pioneers).

Dale certainly was spunky in some of those (thinks of Don't Fence Me In and Heldorado...)! I like her best when she's playing a ranch girl, though, and she played a city slicker in most of those. I do terribly miss Gabby and the SOP in the later movies. Republic must have had its brains screwed on wrong to let them go!

My favorite times where from Apache Rose to Pals of the Golden West or the RR show. I liked it best when she could be nice as well as spunky and I like her because Dale was always so genuine.
He's the King of the Cowboys, a legend in his time a man who loves his country, where he will always ride! Saddled up on his golden palamino, with a six-gun at each side, he has given us precious memorys and Happy Trails for me and you!

I think she did a real good job playing the uppity city slicker gal in many movies. She could turn on that aloof know -t-all style in a wink and sell it to everyone around her. She was so good at doing that that even her own kids, watching her films years later, used to always get after her for being so darn 'mean and snooty' to poor Roy, ha ha !! If that is not solid proof...what is???

Can't you just see Roy sitting back and laughing slyly at those interchanges.

Chief Blackhawk (Hawkeye) once said,' this is the place I shall make my stand' as he crossed the mighty Mississippi into Ioway Territory in 1832. Roy always respected the Native Amercans in all his films and had Choctaw blood. Native American Tribute & Musical Wigwam site http://eowawa.com

Actually, when you think about it, the era that Dale had the most influence on started, of course, in 1912 but as I stated before, which is a little bit in error, it didn't stop in 2001...it is still going on and I'm pretty sure, it will continue for a long time to come.
Dale is still having a great influence on us all, wouldn't you say?

To us that have seen RR/DE perform live or on their TV program and in movies, how can we not be influenced by both of them all our lives...maybe some more than others. Some people change but, I figure the majority that have been dear fans will always be such and in being a fan, we take on the standards of life they lived/taught us.

I think that's a good thought, Cowpokey D! Even though DE is now in Heaven, she'll always be influencing us thru her books/tv shows, etc.

Dale was a woman's rights activist in some ways. She made it cool for a woman to have her own thoughts, do her own thing outside of the house and have the confidence to allow herself to be herself, even if it wasn't what the majority of woman in the world were doing and thinking at the time. She was so many things: song writer, actress, horsewoman, daughter, niece, mother, wife, a Holy advisor, author, and probably so many more things than I know of her.

That is so true cowgirlbyebye. Not only was this evident in her real life but in the many different roles she played in the RR movies too.

I think Dale Evans was a great lady and even more so, a great example to everyone.
