This first-ever documentary on the wife of Roy Rogers details the incredible life of Dale Evans and will inspire all ages with her extraordinary legacy. Starring in more than 100 movies and television shows was just a fraction of what she accomplished.
Despite being a destitute, divorced, single-mother at age 16, Dale went on to be a role model for millions of young girls, author 28 inspirational books, write over 300 songs, provoke a generation to care for special needs children, adopt five children, and live out a beautiful 50-year marriage to Roy Rogers, King of the Cowboys.
The Dale Evans Film Project, in conjunction with the Roy Rogers family, has produced a powerful documentary celebrating Dale’s life. Over 20 family members and close friends were interviewed for the documentary and share heart-warming memories of both Roy and Dale. Her inspirational story is woven around action clips from their movies and television shows and makes use of exclusive access to family photos.
Dale Evans: Beyond the Happy Trails was produced to celebrate Dale’s life, remind us of her legacy, and to bring back the values, faith, and character lived by both Roy and Dale to a new generation that did not have the privilege to grow up with them.
The documentary was released on November 5, 2011 in conjunction with Roy’s 100th birthday. It is packaged in a two-DVD 100th Birthday Commemorative Collection and is available at www.RoyandDale.com. Public and private screenings are being held across the country over the next 12 months as Dale’s 100th birthday will be celebrated on October 31, 2012.
