Modern fences!!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Filmed in 1950, starring Gene Autry, who by that time was a seasoned actor who had grown better and better with the years. Gone were some of the dressy and wonderfully tailored outfits of yesteryear and in it's place was a man in plain jeans and shirts, (of course, we still had the fancy guns and custom made cowboy boots Autry was so famous for) but none the less the hero who saves the day. One of the first in the area to use barbed wire for his cattle ranch, Autry had to uncover a plot by the bad guys to drive a wedge between neighbors using the barbed wire controversy, so that they could buy their ranchs to raise sheep. In turn he also helps a young girl, Gail Davis and her brother to keep their ranch which was in trouble financially. Autry movies in the late 40's and early 50's took on a much more realistic story line which I guess was due to the maturing of this famous "Singing Cowboy". Either way...whether in early movies or the later, more serious movies....they just didn't make them any better. Autry will never be forgotten for the moral and ethical values he showed in these movies. My hats off to you Mr. Autry....He died Oct 2, 1998 long before I discovered his movies and I wish I had found them sooner!!"
