The Trail of Robin Hood is the 1950 western starring Roy Rogers. He plays a government employee who is friends with retired western star, Jack Holt. Jack runs a Christmas tree business that his rival, Aldridge, wants to buy. He sends his daughter and some men to sabotage the business, unaware that his men plan to double-cross him. Holt finds out, but gets hurt in the process. To make matters worse, nobody is willing to help Roy deliver the Christmas trees. Luckily, several other famous cowboys are willing to help Roy Rogers. Can our group of western heroes deliver the trees safely?
This hour long movie crams a lot of stuff in the plot. However, it doesn’t feel rushed and works as a result. Roy Rogers is a pretty good singer, so even if you don’t care for this type of music, he can pull it off. Sis is easily the best character in the movie, as she is both tough and adorable at the same time. The climax is cool as we see the popular western stars of the time team up with Roy Rogers. Even Aldridge turns out not to be so bad after all as he is willing to work with Jack in the end. Honolulu western fans should watch this movie.
