Happy Birthday Leonard Slye

Roy Rogers, born Leonard Slye on November 5, 1911 in Duck Run, Ohio. Remember Dale Evans, Trigger, Bullet, Sons of the Pioneers? Roy was in lots of movies and TV shows. His first movie was in Slightly Static in 1935 and 12 other movies where he was uncredited. In 1938, his first movie as Roy Rogers was Under Western Stars. Bullet was stuffed and sold for $35,000 (I didn't know that), and Trigger was stuffed and sold for.... ready for this .... $266,000. Dale's stuffed horse Buttermilk sold for $25,000. Bearwiskers says... Wow.
