Romance of the Rockies is considered the best of Tom Keene's starring westerns for Monogram. Keene is cast against type as a doctor, replete with non-cowboy wardrobe. Despite his calm demeanor, our hero proves a worthy adversary when the villains try to grab up all the local water rights. The best scene finds Keene "riding" a surging underground stream after a dynamite blast, using a stick as a rudder. The leading lady this time out is Beryl Wallace, a former Earl Carroll showgirl who made quite a few westerns in the late 1930s.
