REX ALLEN and MONTE HALE
The western stars are shown in a black and white publicity photograph for the 1950 film Trail of Robin Hood
Photograph signed: "Rex Allen" and "Monte Hale", in various inks, b/w, 8x10. Publicity photograph for the 1950 film Trail of Robin Hood. REX ALLEN (1920-1999) was one of the last of the singing cowboys, but got his start in music, not acting. He started playing fiddle when he was 11 years old; he also had a short-lived career in rodeo, which ended after he was injured by a bull. Allen returned to music and became a popular singer on National Barn Dance on Chicago's WLS radio station. He released his first album in 1949, the same year that he appeared in his first movie, Republic's The Arizona Cowboy. Originally considered a possible replacement for Roy Rogers, Allen went on to appear in over 30 movies and TV shows between 1949 and 1986, including Republic's TV series Frontier Doctor (1958-1959). He appeared in 12 movies with Slim Pickens in the 1950s (as well as an episode of Frontier Doctor). Audiences from the 1960s on may be more familiar with Allen's voice though: He narrated a number of Disney films including The Legend of Lobo (1962), The Incredible Journey (1963) and Charlie the Lonesome Cougar (1967), as well as narrating the 1973 Hanna-Barbera adaptation of Charlotte's Web. Allen continued recording into the 1970s and scored a hit in 1962 with Don't Go Near the Indians, which peaked at No. 4 on the country charts and No. 17 on the Billboard Hot 100. One of Republic Pictures' singing cowboys, MONTE HALE (1919-2009) had supporting roles in Westerns starring Roy Rogers and Sunset Carson before starring in his own series of films in the late 1940s. He later toured with the band of singing cowboy composer Ray Whitley. Hale is a member of the Western Music Association Hall of Fame. Fine condition.
