Gene Autry Double Features at The Autry Museum
Posted March 3, 2015
The Autry Museum presents a Gene Autry Double Feature every other month in 2015. Each Double Feature has a theme and for the screening on April 25th the theme is "Gene Autry and the Civil War." We'll be showing Gene Autry's movies Indian Territory (1950) and Silver Canyon (1951).
With the new exhibition Empire and Liberty: The Civil War and the West at the Autry Museum, the April Double Feature finds Gene Autry in the Civil War era. In the first film, Indian Territory, Gene is a sergeant in the post-Civil War Cavalry who tangles with a renegade Austrian who wants to use the Indians to build himself an empire in America. Then in Silver Canyon, Gene is a U.S. Army scout during the Civil War who must bring in a notorious gang of Confederate guerrilla raiders who are interfering with federal supply lines. Both films star leading lady Gail Davis, comic sidekick Pat Buttram, and Champion, World's Wonder Horse.
For details on the Saturday, April 25th Gene Autry Double Feature please visit the Autry Museum's website here.
