Gene Autry Double Features at The Autry Museum
Updated April 20, 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.

Gene Autry YouTube Clip of the Week
Posted April 20, 2015
The San Fernando Valley of Southern California was home to Gene Autry beginning in 1938 when he lived in North Hollywood. Gene's movie, radio, and television career was based there with Republic Pictures Studio, KNX Radio, and Flying A Pictures. In later years, his business interests such as his music publishing companies, television and radio stations, plus the Autry National Center also called the San Fernando Valley home. No wonder Gene sings “The San Fernando Valley” with such enthusiasm!
