Synopsis

Gene Autry is the only entertainer with all five stars on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, one each for Radio, Recording, Motion Pictures, Television and Live Performance. He was the silver screen’s first singing cowboy and is credited with creating the genre of the musical B Western. As the star of 89 feature films, Gene brings music, comedy and action to each of his roles. Now, for the first time in a DVD collection, Gene Autry’s rollicking big screen adventures and unforgettable tunes are brought home in these Western classics, fully restored and uncut from Autry’s personal film archives.

THE STRAWBERRY ROAN

In Gene Autry’s first color picture, Champion stars in the title role as a wild stallion who becomes a legend of the West. More exciting than any manhunt is the furious pursuit of an outlaw stallion, branded a killer, and the two-fisted cowboy who fights off a gun-crazed posse to win justice for the noble animal. Filmed in vibrantly hued Cinecolor against the beauty of Arizona landscapes, THE STRAWBERRY ROAN combines thrill-filled action with a tender story of loyalty and includes great Western songs. (1948)

RIM OF THE CANYON

Gene Autry, playing a dual role as his father and himself, is stranded in a ghost town haunted by thieves, who are searching for $30,000 stolen twenty years earlier from Big Tim Hanlon. A bookish schoolteacher who claims to have talked to the long-believed dead Big Tim aids Gene with his search for the outlaws and the long-lost treasure. The film stars Champion, World’s Wonder Horse, Nan Leslie, Thurston Hall, Jock O’Mahoney and Alan Hale, Jr. (1949)

BARBED WIRE

In 1878, Gene Autry is a cattle buyer whose supply of steers in Texas dries up due to a feud between homesteaders and cattlemen. With the help of land agent Pat Buttram and a feisty female newspaper reporter-publisher, Gene investigates the squatters who have fenced off the range with barbed wire. They soon discover that there is more to the story than a range war. With Anne James, William Fawcett, and Champion, World’s Wonder Horse. (1952)

WINNING OF THE WEST

Territorial Ranger Gene Autry is ordered to protect crusading publisher John Randolph and printer Smiley Burnette from unscrupulous crooks who are using Indian raids as a cover-up for their bandit activities. When Gene’s outlaw brother kills Randolph, Gene is suspected of being reluctant to capture him. Gail Davis, Richard Crane, Robert Livingston and Champion, World’s Wonder Horse star in this popular Western. (1953)
