Bells of San Angelo Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

The Bells of San Angelo was the second Republic [[Performer~P61128~Roy Rogers~royrogers]] western to be filmed in the "new" Trucolor process (actually the old Magnacolor process). Set in the modern west, the story involves a silver-smuggling racket headed by rotten Rex Gridley ([[Performer~P47557~John McGuire~johnmcguire]]). In a novel scripting touch, [[Performer~P61128~Roy Rogers~royrogers]] doesn't outwit the villains-and in fact is soundly beaten by the bad guys halfway through the film. It's up to heroine Lee Madison ([[Performer~P22240~Dale Evans~daleevans]]), a writer of fanciful cowboy novels, to save the day! By taking [[Performer~P61128~Roy Rogers~royrogers]] off his "King of the Cowboys" pedestal, Bells of San Angelo succeeds in humanizing this western icon, and the film is all the better for it. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
