The 1975 western Mackintosh and T.J.  is one of the few films in which Roy Rogers did not play himself, portraying instead the title character of Mackintosh, a veteran ranch hand.

In the film, wandering through rural Texas ranch country, Mackintosh becomes a father figure for the young and homeless T.J. (Clay O’Brien) and helps him to stay on track. They land jobs on the ranch of Jim Webster, where Mackintosh proves his skills as a horse tamer. When a murder takes place, Mackintosh is framed which leads to dramatic events.

Directed by Marvin J. Chomsky, the film was restored to 4K from the original 35MM camera negative, including audio cleanup and a color correction process used to match the original film.
