DOWN DAKOTA WAY-1949, Trucolor, 67 minutes. This was released on Republic Home Video, uncut on VHS, with a slightly dark and greenish print. There are YouTube uploads of an edited unrestored print and an uncut newer print version that looks brighter but still needs color correction, to turn the teal looking denim blue. The credits in the newer print are centered better than the old VHS. On the way to a Wild West show, Roy and the Riders of the Purple Sage are visiting another of Roy's hometowns, when they encounter a bus holdup. The local animal doctor is taken off the bus and murdered. This is part of Roy Barcroft's plan to sell diseased cattle before the authorities could be notified by the vet. His henchmen are Byron Barr and James Cardwell. Byron Barr: Pat and Roy with James Cardwell: Dale is the new schoolmarm. The old schoolmarm, Elisabeth Risdon, is the aunt/stepmother of Barr. She tries to stop the sheriff from arresting Barr. Pat Brady is on hand with some hound dogs. Some of the dogs that show up in Roy Rogers movies might have been owned by Roy. In one of his bios, Roy tells of the time he had to go to the murder scene of Carl 'Alfalfa' Switzer, to pick up his hunting dogs. Switzer had been shot to death, during a card game, and had borrowed Roy's dogs at the time. The sheriff in DOWN DAKOTA WAY is played by, riding and roping expert, Montie Montana. Montana rides his own paint horse in the movie. Montie Montana was famous, in 1953, for throwing a lasso around President Dwight D. Eisenhower, during his Inaugural Parade. YouTube uploads edited and unedited. Note the color and damage differences.
