Summer movie series continues at the Victor Valley Museum
“The Cowboy and the Senorita” stars Roy Rogers, Dale Evans
Roy Rogers was King of the Cowboys. His wife Dale Evans was Queen of the West. Together, with a home in Apple Valley and a ranch in Oro Grande, they were High Desert royalty. See them in their first film together at the Victor Valley Museum on Friday, August 10. The movie starts at noon; bring a picnic and enjoy popcorn while you watch “The Cowboy and the Senorita.” The movie and popcorn are included with museum general admission.
“The Cowboy and the Senorita” is a 1941 classic in the “B” movie tradition of westerns, billed as a “fun filled fiesta of thrills and action.” Roy and his sidekick thwart a villain to save an inherited gold mine and rescue a sister played by Dale Evans from an unwanted marriage to the bad guy. Roy saves the day and the girl while managing to sing a half-dozen songs along with Dale and the Sons of the Pioneers. Eventually Roy and Dale made 27 films together. They married in 1947.
The summer movie series at the Victor Valley Museum concludes with “Paddington 2,” which will screen on Saturday, August 25.
