Dick Jones
Posted July 8, 2014

Gene Autry Entertainment is sad to report that actor Dick Jones died at his home in Northridge, California on Monday, July 7th. Dick co-starred in five Gene Autry movies in the 1950s, most notably The Strawberry Roan. He went on to work in television for Gene Autry's Flying A Pictures, Inc. where he appeared in 10 episodes of The Gene Autry Show, four episodes of Annie Oakley and starred in two western series The Range Rider and Buffalo Bill, Jr.

Dick was a cherished, long-time friend of Jackie and Gene Autry. He was also treasured by the girls at Gene Autry Entertainment. Talking with Dick invariably made the day brighter. He was just that kind of fellow – it was easy to smile in his presence. When information on a memorial service is available, Gene Autry Entertainment will post it on our website.

Riding Your Way This Summer! Gene Autry Collection 7
Posted July 1, 2014

Gene Autry Entertainment and Timeless Media Group are excited to announce the next installment of Gene Autry movies on DVD: Gene Autry Collection 7 with the fully restored and uncut feature films Tumbling Tumbleweeds, The Old Corral, Prairie Moon, and Carolina Moon.

Pre-Order Now!
You can pre-order the two disc DVD set of The Gene Autry Collection 7 with the fully restored and uncut films Tumbling Tumbleweeds, The Old Corral, Prairie Moon, and Carolina Moon today from the Autry Museum Store for a special pre-order price of $15.50. Pre-order sale price good until August 25th. And yes, if you are a member of the Autry National Center, you can use your Museum Discount!

Tumbling Tumbleweeds, Gene Autry's first starring role in a feature film, was previously released on DVD in 2006 and quickly sold out. This movie is significant in American film history as it was the first of its kind and set the standard for Singing Cowboy B Westerns. We are thrilled to re-issue this Western classic now with three of Gene's films that are making their DVD debut. The Old Corral, Prairie Moon, and Carolina Moon round out the collection.

Gene Autry Collection 7 DVD is a two disc set that includes four of Gene's Republic Pictures films that are all beautifully restored in their original black and white release from the Cowboy's personal film archives. Plus, each film has terrific bonus material: Gene Autry and Pat Buttram discussing the film from the Melody Ranch Theater, a Gene Autry Melody Ranch radio show episode, a photo gallery with publicity stills, poster art and lobby cards, plus trivia and movie facts.

For details on the films Tumbling Tumbleweeds (1935), The Old Corral (1936), Prairie Moon (1938), and Carolina Moon (1940) such as cast listing, songs, and synopsis, click on the lobby cards below.

Gene Autry Double Features
At the Autry National Center of the American West

Updated July 1, 2014

Autry Double Feature

The next Gene Autry Double Feature at the Autry Museum is on Saturday, August 23rd. Gene Autry's Westerns are known for their music, comedy, and action. In Boots and Saddles Gene sings the classic tunes "Take Me Back to My Boots and Saddle" and "The One Rose That's Left in My Heart," Smiley provides the comedy, and there is plenty of action in a cross-country horse race. In Gold Mine in the Sky, Gene once again sings terrific tunes along with the Stafford Sisters and J. L. Frank's Golden West Cowboys, and Smiley sings the humorous songs "That's How Donkeys Were Born" and "I'm a Tumbleweed Tenor." Chicago racketeers, cattle rustling, kidnapping, and an attempted murder bring plenty of action for Gene, Smiley, and Champion.

The Gene Autry Double Feature of Boots and Saddles (1937) and Gold Mine in the Sky (1938) begins at noon in the Imagination Gallery's Western Legacy Theater. For more details, visit the museum's website here.
