If you grew up in the 1930s, 1940s, or 1950s you know that Roy Rogers and Dale Evans were an every Saturday attraction on the movie screen or television. When I popped the first DVD in my mind was flooded with feel good memories of the theme song, just how beautiful Dale was, how very handsome Roy Rogers was, Roy's horse Trigger, their dog Bullet, and the wholesome entertainment that Dale and Roy brought to us.
This Roy Rogers' 100th Birthday Celebration Commemorative 2-DVD Collector's Edition shares the influence that Dale and Roy had on American culture. Their children, grandchildren, co-workers in the business, and friends share their personal memories and knowledge of Dale and Roy's professional career, their personal lives, and all of the charitable things they did to give back.
I was very touched by the love and admiration of Dale's son from a previous marriage. He looks to probably be in his late 70's in this documentary. His love and respect for his mother is undeniable. This documentary on Dale Evans' life, her 51 year marriage to Roy Rogers, their tragic losses, and their work with special-needs children are all very inspiring. I learned many new and interesting facts about Roy and Dale that I had never heard before.
This 2-DVD collection also includes two full-length, fully-restored, and uncut feature films, along with two television shows. This is a must see for anyone over 60 and it would make a wonderful introduction to the values and characters of Roy and Dale to all those who are under 60.
As I was watching the dvd's I couldn't help but think just how much my parents who are in their 80's would enjoy this feel-good documentary and the special features that are included. Dale Evans: "Beyond the Happy Trails" would make a lovely gift for your older loved ones!
