- Closed Captioned
Gene Autry's second 1953 entry, On Top of Old Smoky casts Autry more or less as himself, a travelling balladeer. The story gets under way when Autry and his back-up vocalists are mistaken for a group of Texas Rangers. Not wishing to disappoint anyone, Gene agrees to help heroine Jen Larrabee (Gail Davis, later TV's "Annie Oakley") protect her toll road against villainous prospectors. The big-money scene occurs during the closing reel, wherein Gene and the bad guys duke it out atop a burning railroad trestle. Smiley Burnette co-stars as Autry's sidekick, while Burnette's wife Sheila Ryan plays a secondary role. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
The Blazing Sun
Gene Autry is back in the saddle again in The Blazing Sun. On this occasion, Autry plays a lawman in pursuit of two bank robbers. Adding novelty is the fact that the film is set in the contemporary West, with Pat Buttram co-starring as a conceited radio actor Mike. Weaving in and out of the proceedings is enigmatic heroine Kitty (Anne Gwynne), whose curious behavior is explained in full at fadeout time. Blazing Sun is capped by an exciting runaway-train sequence, pitting Autry against principal heavy Kenne Duncan. Featured in the cast is future Gilligan's Island co-star Alan Hale Jr. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
The Hills of Utah
Hills of Utah casts Gene Autry as a frontier doctor with a predilection for singing. A recent med-school graduate, Autry sets up practice in the midst of a long-standing feud between cattlemen and miners. While patching up the participants of the feud, Gene searches every nook and cranny for the man who murdered his father. Along the way, our hero is himself wrongly accused of murder, but of course the actual culprit is the same villain he's been looking for. Autry's usual leading lady Gail Davis must have been busy elsewhere, inasmuch as Elaine Riley fulfills the heroine duties this time out. For no real reason other than to satiate the demands of his fans, Gene Autry renders his top 10 hit "Peter Cottontail" halfway through the proceedings. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
The Cowboy and the Indians
In this western, a cowboy comes to the aid of the Indians. The story begins as hero, Gene Autry, begins an investigation of a series of Indian raids. They had been stealing food from homesteads located around the reservation. Autry is appalled to discover that they have been taking the food because a sleazy Indian agent has been cheating them out of their food allotments and they are starving to death. Autry saves the Indians and sees that the dishonest agent is punished. He then watches the romance between his female assistant and the Indian chief. Songs include: "One Little Indian Boy," "America," "Silent Night," and "Here Comes Santa Claus." ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
