About Roy Rogers

Roy Rogers was born Leonard Franklin Slye on November 5, 1911 in Cincinnati, Ohio. As a youth he quit high school to work in a shoe factory with his father to help support his family. In his late teens he moved to California, where a sister had already gone, and was soon followed by the rest of the family. For a time he and his father both found work as truck drivers, but when the construction company they worked for went bankrupt they were forced to move on and found themselves picking fruit and living in campsites with other workers. When his father decided to move to Los Angeles to work in another shoe factory, young Len decided to pursue a career as a singer.

After several years of little success in the singing business, in 1933 Len founded a Western singing group with Bob Nolan and Tim Spencer. The group was called The Pioneer Trio. In early 1934, while preparing for a radio performance, radio announcer Harry Hall called the group Sons of the Pioneers, saying that the young men looked too young to be pioneers themselves. The new name stuck, and the Sons of the Pioneers, with their beautiful harmonies, found huge success. Soon after Len began working in the movies, finding steady work in Westerns in supporting roles or as a singing cowboy. In 1938 he signed with Republic Studios, who soon changed his name to Roy Rogers. Shortly after his name change Republic placed him in his first leading role in "Under Western Stars." For the movie he was paired for the first time with a golden palomino stallion named Golden Cloud, a name Roy soon changed to Trigger. The movie was a huge success, launching the duo of Roy Rogers and Trigger on their ascent to entertainment superstardom.

Roy Rogers and Trigger attained a status as American legends, galloping fearlessly into the hearts of movie, and then television, audiences. The duo always stood for what was right and thrilled audiences with their wild cowboy adventures. Roy could ride a horse, twirl a gun, and sing a heck of a good song to boot. Along with the actress Dale Evans (who became his real life wife), Roy and Trigger also teamed up with Bullet The Wonder Dog and pal Pat Brady (who drove the Jeep Nellybell) to right injustice throughout the cinematic American West. Devout Christians, Roy and Dale also made countless personal appearances, many of which carried a distinct Christian message. When Roy Rogers passed away in 1998 at the age of 86 he left legions of fans spanning all ages, many of whom love and collect a wide variety of Roy Rogers memorabilia.
