1948 Roy Rogers Film: Night Time in Nevada

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

Kevin mentioned the film Night Time in Nevada the other day, noting it showed a CJ-2A pulling a trailer. Well, it does’t just pull the trailer, it races through the desert with the trailer at one point. Oddly enough, the sound effects at that point in the film make it sound like the jeep and trailer are swerving with screeching tires on streets rather than on a sandy trail dual-track trail.

The Jeep-trailer scene begins about the 12:46 point.

    Thanks for this! The movie poster advertises ‘TRUCOLOR’ although I’ve only seen it in black and white.
    Yes, screeching tires fake. Trailer jack knife not fake.

    I was looking at the movie poster, and I said to myself, gee the guy on the right looks like Andy Devine. Sure enough, he is listed in the opening credits. The reason I mention this is the following, Andy Devine started in the TV series “Wild Bill Hickok” as “Jingles”Wild Bill’s sidekick. This series was on during the same years as the Roy Rogers TV show, as a child, I watched them both in the 1950’s. Just to confuse a little kid more, Andy Devine hosted a kids show back then by the name of “Andy’s Gang” featuring “Froggy the Gremlin, (pluck your magic twangier froggy) I kid you not that’s what was said on the show every time froggy appeared. Froggy squeeze toys were popular, and I now collect and restore them. I had to do something to keep me busy, I’ve been priced out of the The Willys Jeep hobby.

    Mike,

    Those are all shows I know little about. That’s for the education!

    Thanks Dave. I enjoyed the whole show. I don’t think we got to see the Jeep move again after the jack-knife parking job.
