Roy Rogers 100

When Leonard Franklin Slye* was born on November 5, 1911, no one had any idea that he would one day become Roy Rogers, the “King of the Cowboys,” and the positive effect he would have on the lives of so many people, but that’s exactly what happened. Over the course of 100 movies, 15 years of the Roy Rogers show on radio and television and countless personal appearances, along with his wife, Dale Evans, the “Queen of the West,” and “Trigger”, the iconic golden palomino, he was a pillar of strength, honesty, fairness, courage and decency that impacted on the lives of countless people. In celebration of what would have been Roy Rogers’ 100th birthday, RFD-TV is honoring the “King of the Cowboys” with a spectacular 75-foot float titled “Happy Trails” in the 2012 Tournament of Roses Parade®. Checkout our collection of books, DVD’s and Roy’s radio show on CD.
