Movie Reviews

The Singing Cowboy is Back in the Saddle Again
Michael Holdridge | Syracuse, NY | 03/06/2009

"Before I explain why EVERY Gene Autry fan should have DVDs like these in his or her collection, let me clear up a misconception. This product has absolutely NOTHING to do with the Gene Autry TV Show.

This set of two DVDs contains 10 Gene Autry movies which millions of little buckaroos used to watch at their local theaters on Saturday afternoons in the 1930s, '40s and early '50s. The films range in length from 54 to 70 minutes.

By contrast, The Gene Autry TV Show was 30 minutes long and was broadcast in the 1950s.

While the quality of the DVDs in Gene Autry Collection, Vol. 1 by Pop Flix is not quite as good as you'll find in Autry's own company's releases or on the Encore Westerns Channel, it's not bad for the price. After all, how can you beat 10 Gene Autry movies for 69 cents apiece?

And this set contains a real plus for Gene Autry collectors -- Autry and sidekick Smiley Burnette's first screen appearances. That took place in 1934 when they appeared as dance band members in the Ken Maynard (and Gabby Hayes) film "In Old Santa Fe."

Autry and Burnette did not even receive screen credits in this film, but soon after, Autry began his meteoric rise to the top of Hollywood's film attractions.

Gene Autry fans -- and there are probably millions of us still around -- can't go wrong having this set of films in our collections.

"I enjoy watching this pioneer in the western Movie industry. These shows were very well done and moviing Pat Buttram was an excellent sidekick for comic relief.The Gene Autry Show was an American western/cowboy television series which aired for 91 episodes on CBS from July 23, 1950 until August 7, 1956.

Gene Autry had already established his singing cowboy character on radio and the movies. Now he and his horse Champion were featured in a weekly television series of western adventures. Gene's role changed almost weekly from rancher, to ranch hand, to sheriff, to border agent, etc. Gene's usual comic relief and sidekick, Pat, was played by Pat Buttram, better known to later television viewers as "Mr Haney" on "Green Acres". During the first season, Gene's sidekick was played by Chill Wills twice (as Chill) and by Fuzzy Knight four times (as Sagebrush). These two actors even wore Pat's costume. Alan Hale, Jr. (a.k.a. - "The Skipper" from "Gilligan's Island") played a bad guy in several episodes of Seasons 1 & 2, but he also played Gene's sidekick, Tiny, in two episodes of Season 1.

By this time, Gene Autry had established his own production company "Flying A Pictures" and acted as executive director for the series.

The series lasted 5 seasons. The first 4 were in black and white, and the final season was in color. Color was experimented with in two or three episodes of the first season. The theme song Back In The Saddle Again was written by Gene Autry & Ray Whitley and sung by Gene Autry.

The Gene Autry Show had a 26 episode Saturday morning spin-off called The Adventures of Champion in 1955.

Gene Autry's feature films in the late 1940s and the 1950s often included cast members from his TV show.
