First up is Zane Grey’s “The Border Legion” starring Roy Rogers, Louis Stevens, George “Gabby” Hayes, Carol Hughes and Joe Sawyer. Released by Republic Pictures in 1940, Joseph Kane directed this film.

The second feature will be “Trail of Robin Hood” (Republic Pictures, 1950), starring Roy Rogers, Penny Edwards, Gordon Jones, Rex Allen, Allan “Rocky” Lane and Monte Hale. William Witney directed. “Trail of Robin Hood” was filmed in the San Bernardino Mountains and around Big Bear Lake in California. It is notable for featuring a large cast of Western stars and the last film that Roy filmed in Trucolor.

We’ll also view Chapter 5 of our serial, “Dick Tracy vs Crime Inc.” (Republic, 1941) Starring Ralph Byrd, The Ghost, Michael Owen and Jan Wiley. Directed by William Witney and John English.

See you there!
