Striking color pose of "The King of the Cowboys" and his golden palomino, Trigger, who was billed as the "Smartest Horse in the Movies".
Photograph signed: "Our best wishes/Roy Rogers/&/Trigger". Color, 8x10. A founding member of the Western music group, Sons of the Pioneers (1934), Roy Rogers (1911-1998), born Leonard Slye, broke into films as a singing cowboy the following year. Beginning in 1938, he had starring roles in dozens of Western films that featured his horse, Trigger, and his frequent sidekick, Gabby Hayes. Another frequent co-star was Dale Evans. Roy and Dale co-starred in several films, including The Cowboy and the Senorita (1944), The Yellow Rose of Texas (1944), Don't Fence Me In (1945), My Pal Trigger (1946) and Apache Rose (1947), before they were married in 1947. They then starred on television on The Roy Rogers Show (1951-1957) and The Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Show (1962-1963), which closed with their theme song, "Happy Trails to You", written by Evans. Married for 50 years, "The King of the Cowboys" and "The Queen of the West" were a devoted couple with many children (many whom they adopted) and grandchildren. Slightly creased at blank corners. Minor surface creases and smudges (not evident head on). Ink note (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Fine condition.
