Roy Rogers (1911 - 1998) was a star of over a hundred "singing cowboy" movies, as well as a long-running series that began on radio and moved to television.

Generally accompanied by his CoolHorse Trigger, his gal Dale Evans, and one or both of his sidekicks, Pat Brady and Gabby Hayes.

He also has a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Rogers_Restaurants fast food chain]] named after him. Make of that what you will.
