The Gene Autry Show - Box Art, Details and Extras for 'The Complete Series' 15-DVD Set
Timeless Media Group release is scheduled to street December 10th
Posted by David Lambert
The other week we let you know that The Gene Autry Show - The Complete Series is coming to DVD from Timeless Media Group on December 10th. At the time we didn't have details or package art for the 15-disc set, but now the Amazon pre-order listing (see button link below) has been updated with both! Here's a quote for the info, and then followed by the packaging:
The Gene Autry Show, sponsored by Wrigley's Doublemint Chewing Gum, originally aired on CBS from 1950 to 1955. The program follows the adventures of singing cowboy Gene Autry, his Wonder Horse Champion, and his sidekick Pat Buttram, who travel the Southwest to maintain law and order. The series is a collection of stand-alone half-hour episodes: Sometimes Gene and Pat know each other sometimes they do not; some shows are set in the past and some are in the near present of the early 1950s. Each unique show has Gene's trademark mixture of action, comedy, and singing. See for yourself why the hard riding, furious fighting, and smooth singing Gene Autry is considered America's favorite cowboy.
Bonus Disc: Gene's venture into television led to the creation of Flying A Pictures, which produced five popular half-hour Westerns, presented here for the first time in one package. You'll see two episodes each of The Gene Autry Show, The Range Rider, Annie Oakley, Buffalo Bill, Jr. and The Adventures of Champion. Black & White and Color.
