I Tipped My Hat and Slowly Rode Away
from Twilight on the Rio Grande (1947)

Gene Autry tries to cool down a hot headed knife thrower with the humorous musical number "I Tipped My Hat and Slowly Rode Away" from the 1947 Republic Pictures film Twilight on the Rio Grande. That's Sterling Holloway as Pokie starting of the number and the Cass County Boys providing accompaniment. Actress Adele Mara gives the feisty performance as knife thrower Elena Del Rio.
