Featuring The Cass County Boys
Gene Autry Collection - Featuring The Cass County Boys rounds up four Gene Autry-Cass County Boys classic Western films together for the first time as a DVD box set. While stationed at Love Field, Texas, during World War II. Gene Autry heard the Cass County Boys performing at a local club and asked if they'd like to join him when he got out of the service. True to his word, Gene hooked up with the musical trio and from 1946 until the end of his touring days, the Cass County Boys were Gene Autry's musical back-up group in the movies, on television, on the radio, and in personal appearance tours and rodeos. Enjoy the very best of the Cass County Boys' music and humor with America's Favorite Singing Cowboy in their original glorious black and white movies now fully restored from Gene Autry's personal film archives.
Robin Hood Of Texas

It's a sharp-shooting showdown with the border town boss when Gene and Champ go after the missing payroll and the misguided teenage bandit!
