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.

TRAIL OF ROBIN HOOD (Republic, 1950) was released in December, 1950, and in keeping with the Holiday season, the storyline had some baddies stealing Christmas trees from Jack Holt's tree farm.  A whole bunch of guest stars appeared with Roy. Above in the front row from L-to-R are Roy, Allan 'Rocky' Lane, Monte Hale and Gordon Jones (who was Roy's sidekick at that time).  In the back row from L-to-R are Kermit Maynard, Tom Tyler, Ray 'Crash' Corrigan, William Farnum, George Chesebro, Foy Willing and the Riders of the Purple Sage.

TRAIL OF ROBIN HOOD was the last of Roy's Trucolor westerns --- and he only did five more starring films before exiting Republic and beginning his TV series.
