Movie Info

Young Buffalo Bill was one of a brief series of Roy Rogers "historical westerns" of the early 1940s. Per the title, Rogers plays the youthful Bill Cody, here depicted as an assistant land surveyor in old New Mexico. The villains plot to get their hands on valuable mineral deposits in the region, and to that end enlist the aid of a hostile Indian tribe. But Young Buffalo Bill saves the day, with a bit of assistance from the ever-on-time US Cavalry. George "Gabby" Hayes is around for his traditional comedy relief, while the aristocratic Spanish-American heroine is played by winsome Pauline Moore, Republic's "answer" to Margaret Sullavan.
