About this Event: With Trigger, “the smartest horse in the movies,” Roy Rogers became an icon of decency and fair play during the long run of his hit 1950s television show. However, Rogers’s film career started with his first starring role in 1938. This film celebrates his first decade in the movies as he is shown making a movie at Republic Pictures, featured in the film’s early moments. Soon after, a local horse dealer steals Trigger to sell, along with rounded-up strays. A young boy caught between the two warring parties adds intrigue to the plot. Also featured are Bob Nolan and the Sons of the Pioneers, with whom Rogers sang early in his career.
