I'm Oscar, I'm Pete
from The Phantom Empire, Chapter 2 (1935)

Singing Cowboy Gene Autry performs the humorous song "I'm Oscar, I'm Pete" with some help from his friends in the Science Fiction Western 12-part serial The Phantom Empire (1935). This was radio and recording artist star Gene Autry's first starring role on film.

The Phantom Empire is a fantastic adventure with music, comedy, and action on the land, in the air and underground in the super-scientific kingdom of Murania. This clip is sourced from Gene Autry's personal film archive.
