Not a Trucolor, but I just watched Film Detective Restored Version of ROMANCE ON THE RANGE issued 1/20/2017. Run time is 53 min. instead of 63 min (package even says 63 min.). No Republic logo at the beginning, soft picture, etc. DON"T BUY!!! Buy the Rare Roy Rogers Movies Vol. 4. Its run time is 60 min...almost there. Probably a few songs cut out.
EDIT: The one streamed from Amazon runs 62 min., is a "beautiful" print with opening Republic logo.
Republic also gave Mary Lee a few solo ventures, like "Nobody's Darling" (1943), "Shantytown" (1943), and "Three Little Sisters" (1944). I remember seeing the latter on television a long time ago, but never the first two. Wish these kinds of Republic B's would circulate more. From the B-westerns to the various odds-and-ends like the Judy Canova or Higgins Family films.
Look again. I just went to Amazon Prime, found the film and started watching it. It's 53 min., has no Republic logo, and is a murky print shown in the wrong aspect ratio with everyone stretched out.
Some of the Judy Canova films are pretty good. HONEYCHILE from 1951 and in Trucolor has Judy and Eddie Foy Jr. working together as a pretty good team. A great action climax at the end of this one. Another good one is William Witney's WAC FROM WALLA WALLA featuring a Pre-Granny Irene Ryan. The great Andy Clyde co-stars with Judy in CAROLINA CANNONBALL which features some neat Lydecker Brothers special effects with the train left over from Gene Autry's MELODY RANCH.
Just read my way through this thread, thank you to all for the great info on finding good copies of Roy's movies. My 4 year old twin nephews are obsessed with Roy (and Trigger) and aside from the three releases from Roan, I have had a hard time finding anything of good quality. Does anyone know about the Classic Movies DVD releases? They say they had access to the Masters and their films are uncut but saying it and actually having done it are, of course, not the same thing. Has anyone has and experience with their sets?
