The Official Website of Gene Autry, America's Favorite Singing Cowboy

Fun Autry Fact:

When he was a young man, Gene received an offer from a professional baseball team to become a player. Gene turned down the offer because it would have meant a fifty-dollar-a-month pay cut from his telegrapher's job.

In Our Little Shanty of Dreams
from Shooting High (1940)

Jane Withers helps Gene Autry paint a house while singing "In Our Little Shanty of Dreams" from the 20th Century Fox film Shooting High (1940). Of course teenager Jane can't help but tease lovelorn Gene during their duet. Shooting High is the only movie Gene Autry made with 20th Century Fox.
