Saloon owner uses Roy Barcroft to muscle local landowners plagued by draught
to sell out cheap in a land grab swindle. When released in 1951 IN OLD AMARILLO ran
67 minutes but was cut to 55 for television. This version restores 5 minutes bringing the
run time to one hour. Unfortunately the added footage is from a less than perfect print. Still
this version is the most complete available. Missing footage includes Roy Rogers singing
the title song and a duet with Roy and Penny Edwards.
CODE OF THE PRAIRIE starring SUNSET CARSON and SMILEY BURNETTE (1944). Outlaws led by the unsuspected
town barber (Roy Barcroft) try to control local sheriff to extort the community. Third in the series of Smiley Burnette -
Sunset Carson Westerns.
