Audience Reviews for Sheriff of Tombstone


131206: I enjoyed this Rogers film quite a bit. Great humour, great characters, fun. It is worth watching this film just for Gabby Hayes and his continual commentary on relationships. Made me smile.

This is an excellent Roy Rogers film with a great cast. Roy cleans up one town and rides to tombstone where he is mistaken for Shotgun Cassidy a hired thug to be sheriff, Roy doesn't let anyone know he's Bret Starr a good guy, until he finds out the town's dirty dealings that he is gonna clean up. Elyse Knox plays the women Roy's heart is after and she is a beauty. Great story line for 1941, 4 Stars

Rather ordinary Roy Rogers movie, with the usual song interludes. More comic relief than usual. Fine "B" western, enjoyable, short and sweet.
