The Gene Autry Show: Gold Dust Charlie

Includes Episodes:

Saddle up, ride along and sing along with America's favorite cowboy into the golden age of television where a white hat meant hero and a guitar was just as handy as a pearl-handled six-gun.

Every week from 1950 to 1955, Gene Autry, the original singing cowboy and star of the rodeo ring, records, radio and the big screen, rounded up a whole herd of thrill-packed adventures and wagonloads of laughter right in America's living room. Now, newly restored, these fun-filled episodes feature the magnificent trick stallion Champion, Gene's unforgettable songs, funny-man Pat Buttram (Green Acres' Mr. Haney) and the worst claim jumpers, bank robbers and desperadoes the West had to offer.

So, load up your cap gun, grab hold of the reins and get ready to ride off into a black-and-white sunset on the dusty trail to action and excitement.
