Trail of Robin Hood (1950): William Witney’s Musical Western, Starring Roy Rogers

Despite the title, there is no reference to Robin Hood in William Witney’s Musical Western, Trail of Robin Hood, starring Roy Rogers.

Shot in San Bernardino Mountains and Big Bear Lake, California, the movie is good-natured and naïve to a fault.

Rogers plays a conservation agent named Roy Rogers preventing loggers from poaching Jack Holt’s Christmas trees.

The cast features Trigger, Rex Allen, and Allan Lane, Jack Holt, Tom Keene, all playing (and cast as) themselves.

Released on December 15, 1950, in time for the holidays, the movie has become a staple in pop culture.

Running time: 67 minutes.
