Cowboys of the Silver Screen
Roy Rogers

Issue Date: April 17, 2010
City: Oklahoma City, OK
Printing Method:
Lithographed
Perforations:
Serpentine Die Cut 10.5 x 10.75
Color: Multicolored

When Roy Rogers (1911-1998) was a child, his father brought home a cylinder player (the predecessor to the phonograph) and a cylinder by a Swiss yodeler. Roy played the cylinder again and again and developed his own style of yodeling. At the age of 18, Rogers moved to California to become a singer.
 
In the 1930s, Roy’s band, Sons of the Pioneers, began singing in Western films. His movie roles were small until 1935, when Gene Autry had a contract dispute with Republic Pictures. The studio held auditions for a singing cowboy to replace Autry in the upcoming movie, Under Western Stars. Roy didn’t have an appointment, so he mingled in with a crowd of movie extras and sneaked onto a lot. The producer loved Roy’s singing, and gave him the starring role.
 
For his horse in the film, Roy chose a palomino named Golden Cloud. A fellow actor mentioned how quick on the trigger the horse was. Rogers agreed and changed the horse’s name to Trigger. The two went on to star in over 80 movies together. 
 
Nicknamed “King of the Cowboys,” Roy became an idol to millions of children. In recognition of his achievements in radio, music, film, and television, Roy received four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
