Gene Autry Double Features at the Autry Museum
Posted February 27, 2017
Saturday matinee double features (the screening of two motion pictures for the price of one) were an industry standard in the first half of the 20th century. In 2017, the Autry National Center of the American West continues the tradition with its own Saturday matinee double features starring America's Favorite Singing Cowboy, Gene Autry. On the fourth Saturday of every other month, two Gene Autry films are screened at the museum in the Imagination Gallery's Western Legacy Theater.
Comedian Pat Buttram was Gene Autry's sidekick in movies, radio, television, and on tour. He made 17 Columbia Pictures films with Gene and two of his best are Mule Train (1950) and Blue Canadian Rockies (1952). Pat provides the humor while Gene brings the songs in these action packed Westerns!
For details on the Saturday, April 22nd Gene Autry Double Feature please
