“The Arizona Kid” is a western film released in 1939, directed by Joseph Kane and starring Roy Rogers, Gabby Hayes, and Sally March.
The story follows Roy Rogers as Roy Rogers (also known as “The Arizona Kid”), a wandering cowboy who comes to the aid of a group of farmers who are being terrorized by a gang of outlaws led by the notorious Wolf Reade (played by Harry Woods). With the help of his sidekick Gabby Whittaker (played by Gabby Hayes) and the beautiful Ellen Baker (played by Sally March), Roy sets out to put an end to the outlaw’s reign of terror.
As Roy and his companions try to find a way to stop the outlaws, they discover that there is more to the situation than meets the eye. The outlaws are working for a corrupt landowner named Henry Larrimore (played by Fred Kohler), who is trying to force the farmers off their land so he can take it over. Roy and his friends must not only fight the outlaws but also uncover the truth about Larrimore’s scheme and put an end to his plans.
Throughout the film, there are plenty of thrilling action sequences, including shootouts and horseback chases, as Roy and his companions face off against the outlaws. There is also some romance as Roy and Ellen develop feelings for each other, and Gabby provides some comic relief with his bumbling antics.
In the end, Roy and his friends are able to bring the outlaws to justice and expose Larrimore’s scheme. The farmers are able to keep their land, and Roy and Ellen ride off into the sunset together.
