I'm Getting a Moon's Eye View of the World
from The Phantom Empire, Chapter 4 (1935)

Singing Cowboy Gene Autry performs "I'm Getting a Moon's Eye View of the World" from an airplane, high over Radio Ranch, in the Science Fiction Western 12-part serial The Phantom Empire (1935). This was radio and recording artist star Gene Autry's first starring role on film.

The Phantom Empire is a fantastic adventure with music, comedy, and action on the land, in the air and underground in the super-scientific kingdom of Murania. This clip is sourced from Gene Autry's personal film archive.
