Shine On, Harvest Moon is a classic musical western film from 1938 starring the famous cowboy actor Roy Rogers as himself, alongside Lynne Roberts and Myrtle Wiseman. The movie is based on the popular song of the same name, which tells a story about a love affair that takes place during the harvest moon. The film is set in the small town of Frontier, Texas, where a group of farmers are trying to save their land from unscrupulous landowners who want to take over their property. In the midst of this turmoil, Roy Rogers arrives in town with his horse Trigger, and immediately attracts the attention of the locals with his singing and guitar playing.

Rogers soon meets the beautiful Ruth Weston (played by Roberts), who is the daughter of one of the farmers struggling to keep his land. Ruth is a talented singer herself, and the two of them quickly form a connection over their shared love of music. However, their budding romance is threatened by the scheming landowners, who will stop at nothing to get their hands on the farmers' land.

As Rogers and Ruth try to help the farmers save their land, they also take part in a series of lively musical numbers, featuring classic tunes such as "Home on the Range" and "Sweet Genevieve." The film is notable for its catchy music and lively dance routines, which showcase the talents of the cast.

Alongside Rogers and Roberts, the film also features Myrtle Wiseman as Aunt Sarah, a kindly old woman who takes a liking to Rogers and helps him in his quest to save the farmers' land. Wiseman brings a warmth and charm to her role, and her scenes with Rogers provide some of the film's most touching moments.

Overall, Shine On, Harvest Moon is a delightful film that combines classic western elements with lively musical numbers.
