Editorial Reviews

Gene Autry heads South of the Border in his biggest rodeo of thrills with a fiesta of melody and a jamboree of romance, all in vivid Cinecolor! Gene rocks all Mexico as he saves a Latin spitfire with Western gunfire and hits the trail of bandits to fight for the right of rancheros to live on their traditional rancho. Outlaws fear him and senoritas cheer him when Gene and his famous horse Champion brave a landslide, cattle stampede, and storms of bullets!

Columbia Pictures present "THE BIG SOMBRERO" (19 April 1949) (78 mins/B&W) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) --- relive those thrilling days when the "First Singing Cowboy" Gene Autry took us down the dusty trails with hard riding and straight shooting hitting the bull's eye with excitement every time --- the Gene Autry series of B-Westerns were a staple of Saturday matinees in the 1930s and 1940s --- The Following Segments are from the "Melody Ranch Theater", which originally aired on the Nashville Network in 1987 --- Hosted by Gene and longtime sidekick Pat Buttram the program showcased many of Gene's classic motion pictures and featured personal anecdotes about how the films were made --- Information on costars and significant happenings in Gene's personal life and career. --- don't miss any of the Singing Cowboy's features loaded with action and songs that will leave you wanting more of Gene Autry's B-Western Adventures --- The sale of this DVD will further the educational and cultural mission of the renowned "Autry National Center in Los Angeles".

As a lifelong fan of Gene Autry I was very pleased to see that the only two films he ever made in Colour was to become available on DVD. Having missed seeing them at the cinema when I was a teenager, I was even more pleased to be able to buy this DVD along with the only other colour film -"The Big Sombrero"

Whilst I found the production values and Script of 'The Strawberry Roan' to be much better than most other Gene Autry films, I was quite disappointed with the tranfer to video. Unfortunately I have found that the transfer has not come out well. The films suffers badly from poor quality colour (probably to to the actual Cinecolour process) and the sound has not been remastered too well.

On my copy at least the film brightness undulates sometimes and also has slight double vision in parts - quite disappointing. Having said this, I did like the story and the songs and it was nice to see Gene Autry in colour. Not a typical Gene Autry film unfortunately in some ways as he has no comic sidekick with him, nor are there any real baddies. A much better quality transfer of his only other colour is the "The Big Sombrero", this does however to me lack a decent script and has too much in the way of modern vehicles in it.
