Does anyone know why Leonard Slye changed his name to Roy Rogers before he became famous as "King of the Cowboys" in the movies ? I'm guessing it was changed for him by the studio who didn't like the word 'slye'.
Who were Leonard Slye's family and what line do they follow ? Is anyone posting here related to this line in some way ?
Leonard "Roy" was born 1912 and died July 1998 at age 86. His long-time wife Dale Evans just died Feb 8, 2001 at age 88.
