The singing cowboy who followed in Gene Autry’s wake became ‘The King of the Cowboys.’ Roy soared to the heights of stardom as one of the greatest of all western stars. Along with his wife and co-star Dale Evans, and Trigger (the smartest horse in the movies) the Roy Rogers musical westerns were some of the most popular of the genre. He was always on the side of right and always stuck up for the weak and oppressed. Roy Rogers represented what we hoped America would always stand for.
