The Gene Autry Collection: Riders in the Sky

Movie Summary

Director:
John English
Released:
1949
Rating:
Not Available
The Gene Autry Collection: Riders in the Sky sees the "Singing Cowboy," Gene Autry (as himself), lured into an adventure that is part detective story, part music history, and all B-western. The film opens with the country music star as he shares the legend behind his hit song, "Riders in the Sky." Autry, as the story goes, is just a hare's breath away from retiring from a career as an investigator for the county attorney and going into the ranch business with his good friend, Chuckawalla Jones (Pat Buttram). His plans are put on hold, however, when he agrees to help Anne Lawson (Gloria Henry) clear her father, Ralph Lawson (Steve Darrell), of the murder of a local gambler. Standing in Autry's way is another gambler, town boss Pop Roberts (Tom London), whose intimidation tactics keep silent the only witnesses who could confirm that the shooting was an act of self-defense. All of this, the inevitable showdown, and a performance of the titular song itself, are packed into the film's brisk 69 minute runtime.moreless
