The Gene Autry Show: Gold Dust Charlie
May 1, 2001
Gold Dust Charlie
Head for Texas
The Doodle Bug
The Silver Arrow
Saddle up, ride along and sing along with America's favorite cowboy into the golden age of television where a white hat meant hero and a guitar was just as handy as a pearl-handled six-gun.
Every week from 1950 to 1955, Gene Autry, the original singing cowboy and star of the rodeo ring, records, radio and the big screen, rounded up a whole herd of thrill-packed adventures and wagonloads of laughter right in America's living room. Now, newly restored and presented here for the first time on DVD, these fun-filled episodes feature the magnificent trick stallion Champion, Gene's unforgettable songs, funny-man Pat Buttram (Green Acres' Mr. Haney) and the worst claim jumpers, bank robbers and desperadoes the West had to offer.
Load up your cap gun, grab hold of the reins and get ready to ride off into a black-and-white sunset on the dusty trail to action and excitement.
This is one DVD with four fully restored The Gene Autry Show episodes: Gold Dust Charlie, Head for Texas, The Doodle Bug, and The Silver Arrow.
Bonus features include Gene Autry Sing-A-Long Jukebox and Gene's Original Wrigley's Chewing Gum Commercials.
