Man from Music Mountain, a black and white western, was released in 1938 by Republic Pictures, the movie studio that launched the careers of western icons John Wayne, Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. Con-artist John Scanlon (Ivan Miller) and his sneaky sidekick show up in town, trumpeting the big news of having just struck a vein of gold in their newly-acquired gold mine. Needing cash to fund the operation, they sell shares in the worthless mine to the townsfolk. Gene catches wind of the scam and responds with a little deception of his own. The movie features songs by Gene Autry, Smiley Burnett (who also plays Frog Millhouse) and up-and-coming songwriter Fred Rose (who would later go on to found a massive music publishing company in Nashville.) The musical numbers include "Man from Music Mountain," "Gambler's Blues," "Burning Love" -- a light-hearted ditty featuring the two female leads -- and "She Works Third Tub At the Laundry," a surprisingly saucy tune for the time.moreless
