Songs in the Bob Nolan Movies

 

        Bob Nolan and the Sons of the Pioneers appeared as a group in at least 90 feature length or short films. Individual members, particularly the Farr Brothers, worked in countless others. The Farr Brothers' music was used in movies in which they were never seen and for which they received no credit. The following list of movies in which Bob Nolan and the Sons of the Pioneers did appear as a group is incomplete. Many videos were made from worn, repaired prints or prints shortened for television. As we find more uncut versions, we discover more songs. We are still discovering short films as collectors make them available for sale.

        Many thanks to Lawrence Hopper and Laurence Zwisohn for their lists of songs from the cue sheets, American Film Institute Catalog, Variety, Exhibitor, etc, and to Fred Sopher who compiled the original list in "Hear My Song" for Ken Griffis. The tracks on this page are taken from the soundtrack of the videos available to us - some quite rare. Sound is uniformly poor. To find a list of titles and production numbers for each film, click here.

    • Black Print: songs we can verify as being in the films in our personal collections

    • Grey Print: songs from films we have not viewed personally therefore we cannot verify the songs being there.

    • Green Print: songs reportedly in the films but which are not in our own copies therefore we cannot verify their presence.
