ROY ROGERS: AMERICAN LEGEND
(Arts & Entertainment Television Networks, $19.95). This nostalgic video presentation highlights the career of Roy Rogers (1912- ), the man who succeeded Gene Autry as Hollywood’s most popular singing cowboy. Rogers’s life is traced from his humble beginning in Cincinnati, Ohio, to the fame and fortune that came to him as a motion picture star throughout the 1940s and ’50s. Home movies offer a glimpse of Rogers’s personal life with his wife and frequent co-star, Dale Evans, and their children. Also included is a tour of The Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum in Victorville, California.
