THE SCREEN'S MIGHTIEST DRAMA OF A STALLION OUTLAW...IN MAGNIFICENT OUTDOOR CINECOLOR!


In Gene Autry's first color picture, Champion stars in the title role as a wild stallion who becomes a legend of the West.

Filmed in vibrantly hued Cinecolor against the beauty of Arizona landscapes, The Strawberry Roan combines thrill-filled action with a tender story of loyalty and includes great Western songs. (1948)
