THE SINGING COWBOY (1936):When Gene Autry's boss is murdered, Gene becomes the guardian of his little girl. The child is seriously injured in a stable fire and needs a lifesaving brain operation.

GUNS AND GUITARS (1936):Gene Autry and Frog Millhouse are musical members of a traveling medicine show who land in the midst of a Texas cattle war.

Smiley Burnette and Dorothy Dix join your singing saddle star in the thundering thrills!
ROUND-UP TIME IN TEXAS (1937):Rancher Gene Autry is summoned to South Africa by his brother Tex who discovered a diamond mine in the Valley of Superstition and is in desperate need of horses. Once in Africa, Gene and his pal, Frog Millhouse, soon learn that Tex is missing and framed for the murder of his mining partner. Tricked into possessing illegal diamonds by a sinister saloon owner, Gene and Frog escape into the jungle to find Tex and uncover the truth. Wild lions, a vine-swinging gorilla, and savage Zulu natives make this an unusual musical Western.
SPRINGTIME IN THE ROCKIES (1937)When cattle-ranch foreman Gene Autry learns that the new ranch owner, Sandra Knight, plans to raise sheep on a "scientific basis," he must convince her to sell them as they will ruin the land. She refuses, leaving Gene and Frog Millhouse to devise a plan to discourage her so that she'll move back East. Soon a crooked cattle dealer takes advantage of the situation, leading to further complications for Gene.
