Above is the title lobby card from the Roy and Dale starrer LIGHTS OF OLD SANTA FE (Republic, 1944). During the period from 1944-1951, Roy and Dale appeared together in 28 films – there was a yearlong break when Dale had a baby.

Above is a 1954 re-release lobby card from DON’T FENCE ME IN (Republic, 1945), one of the best of Roy and Gabby’s films. From left to right are Hugh Farr, Karl Farr, Roy Rogers, Tim Spencer, Dale Evans, Ken Carson and Gabby Hayes. This film includes Cole Porter’s hit song Don’t Fence Me In as well as a great rendition of Tumbling Tumbleweeds by the Sons of the Pioneers. Dale Evans is a newspaper reporter out to do a story on ‘Wildcat Kelly’, a legendary outlaw who has been dead for decades. Dale discovers that ‘Wildcat Kelly’ is Gabby Hayes, who faked his death years ago and changed his ways from outlawry to honest citizen.
