Roy Rogers in Belton?

Hello All:

I am trying to date a photograph in our collection and thought those of you on the list might be able to help. The photo shows Roy Rogers with the Cluck family of Belton. I know that the Clucks owned the Beltonian Theater at some point, so I assume that he was promoting a movie, but I certainly could be wrong. I'm wondering if anyone who grew up in the area remembers when/why Roy Rogers came to Belton. The donor thinks that it was sometime during the 1940s, right around the time that the film <The Story of G.I. Joe,> based on the military service of Beltonian Henry Waskow, was released. (The movie was released in 1945.) Any additional info that anyone can provide would be most appreciated!

Happy New Year,
