Bells of San Angelo

Though I'm not a fan of musicals or formula Westerns I do confess to having a soft spot for Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. BELLS OF SAN ANGELO is a clever little yarn having Dale Evans as a writer whom everybody thinks is a man viisitng the wild West to help solve a nasty little bit of crime. As a story this is the only unique aspect but the chemistry between Rogers and Evans is I gather just as it was in real life. One scene looks like an accident where Rogers turns around and elbows poor Dale in the boob and you can see her trying not to wince. One of the cooler tunes would have to be Hot Lead and of course we get to see the legenday Trigger and Fritz Lieber Sr. as the local padre.
