Product Overview

This special collection includes: Bells of Capistrano, Heart of the Rio Grande, Under Fiesta Stars, and Shooting High.Bells of CapistranoDust off your best cowboy hat and polish up your spurs as America's first and favorite singing cowboy gallops across the silver screen into your living room. Gene Autry, star of radio, records, film, TV and rodeo, invented the musical Western, capturing America's hearts as a guitar-slinging, song-singing, six gun-toting good guy. Riding Champion, the World's Wonder Horse, Autry became a beloved American hero whose popularity remains strong today. Now, for the first time on DVD, Gene Autry's rollicking big screen adventures and unforgettable tunes are brought home in these Western classics fully restored and uncut from Autry's personal film archives. The feud between two rival rodeo companies accelerates when both want Autry as a crowd-drawing added attraction. This Autry's last movie he filmed before serving in World War II. Gene sings five hit songs, including "In Old Capistrano" and "Forgive Me."Heart of the Rio GrandeRanch foreman Gene Autry tames a spoiled teenage shrew sent to Smoke River Dude Ranch for the summer and in the process humanizes her father into becoming a better parent. Originally released in 1942, this film features that year's hit song "Deep In The Heart of Texas" and several other delightful tunes.Under Fiesta StarsRodeo star Gene Autry and a spirited young city gal jointly inherit a ranch and mine. When crooks try to buy the property, she wants to sell, but Gene wants to operate the mine. It takes all of Gene's charm and musical talents to persuade her to see things his way. This rollicking release introduced the character of Tadpole, Frog's little brother, who leads a rescue party in the action-packed climax.Shooting HighTwentieth Century Fox star Jane Withers was so enamored of Gene Autry that she persuaded the studio to sign the Singing Cowboy as her leading man. In this 1940 release Gene plays Will Carson whose grandfather was the town's hero. A Hollywood company arrives to film the story and hires Will as the technical advisor and stunt double. When the star suddenly abandons the film, Will steps in to save the day. Songs include "There's Only One Love In A Lifetime" and "That Little Old Band of Gold."System Requirements:Running Time: 273 MinutesFormat: DVD MOVIE

Editors Note
Note Singing cowboy Gene Autry stars in a quartet of vintage Westerns that offer equal parts action sequences and musical interludes. In BELLS OF CAPISTRANO (1942), rival rodeo companies compete for Autry's singing talents. In HEART OF THE RIO GRANDE (1942), he helps a spoiled rich girl appreciate life on her father's ranch. In UNDER FIESTA STARS (1941), he inherits a ranch and fends off crooks who attempt to swindle the property. And in SHOOTING HIGH (1940), a Hollywood film crew lands in Autry's town to make a movie about his heroic grandfather.
