Roy Rogers: Under The California Stars
[Matinee At] The Bijou Blog, there is a great article about Republic Pictures' 1948 release, Under The California Stars, featuring the "King of the Cowboys," Roy Rogers. In addition to information about the movie itself, this post provides a nice history of Rogers, Dale Evans, the Sons of the Pioneers and, of course, Trigger. By the way, the rider in Trigger's first movie appearence was not Rogers, or any other cowboy for that matter. He was the mount for Maid Marian (Olivia de Havilland) in the 1938 film, The Adventures of Robin Hood when Errol Flynn swung in to welcome her party to Sherwood Forest.
