After guest starring in Ken Maynard's feature IN OLD SANTA FE (1934) and serial MYSTERY MOUNTAIN (1934) Gene was given the chance to star in Mascot's THE PHANTOM EMPIRE (1935) when the studio cut ties with the troublesome Maynard. And even though he sang a few songs as an entertainer in IN OLD SANTA FE and the setting for that film was a contemporary Dude Ranch, it's THE PHANTOM EMPIRE that really set up the AUTRY-STYLE as Gene hosts a radio show broadcast live from his own radio/guest/dude ranch mixing his action feats with popular Western tunes. Truly a milestone in B-Western history!
TUMBLING TUMBLEWEEDS (1935) for the newly formed REPUBLIC PICTURES is Gene's first starring feature, and what a doozie it is, ranking as one of Gene's all time best, and rightfully so.
Lazy and seemingly idle Gene just likes to sit around and sing while his father has to battle intruding nesters. But Gene is really on the ball and sticks up for the nesters only to quarrel with his father and be banished from the homestead. Gene joins a medicine show and returns five years later only to learn that his best friend has been blamed for the recent murder of his father...Gene and Smiley Burnette sort things out with the help of a pre-Gabby George Hayes.
This is a GREAT REPUBLIC WESTERN skillfully directed by Joe Kane. The camera set-ups are outstanding, the photography crisp and inventive. It seems so modern for the 1930's. Few films today are so creatively made. Truly a joy to watch!
And the IMAGE dvd from the GENE AUTRY COLLECTION is as noted on the cover: FULLY RESTORED! It looks as though it had been released yesterday! I really felt as though I were present in the theater in 1935 watching this gem.

This was Gene Autry's first feature-length starring movie, and his acting is just a little stilted in a few places. But overall, he takes charge of this classic tale of ranchers vs. nesters just like the pro he quickly became. His scenes with the two lovely young women are especially relaxed and natural.

Autry looks as young and fresh as a daisy in "Tumbling Tumbleweeds," although he's still got a little baby fat on him that had pretty much disappeared by his movies made in early 1937. It's funny how if you watch his early movies in chronological order, you can see him gradually slim down at the same time his wardrobe sharpens up and his horsemanship on Champ goes from passably adequate to effortlessly expert.

Gene's singing wasn't quite yet what it became later, but nevertheless there's nothing wrong with his pipes as he performs three western classics during the movie: the title song; "Riding Down the Canyon;" and the song for which he won the first-ever gold record: "That Silver-Haired Daddy of Mine."

As the other reviewer mentioned, George Hayes, not yet Gabby, shows his versatility in this flick as the pompous, phony-dignified medicine show "doctor." Smiley Burnette gives samples of the humor and tunes he'll offer in future Autry movies.

This is an expert blend -- just the right proportions of drama, comedy, music and action. The first singing cowboy movie was a great start to a great genre. It's well worth watching.

one of the best from image entertainments finely restored "gene autry collection". great cast of supporting characters and all classic songs. although five stars should be reserved for classic westerns such as "shane", this deserves a five star rating because of who gene autry was and what he represented. bonus features also a definite plus.

Republic Pictures present "TUMBLING TUMBLEWEEDS" (1938) (54 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 ... don't miss any of the Singing Cowboy's Gene Autry features loaded with action that will leave you wanting more of his B-Western adventures

Under Joseph Kane (Director), Nat Levine (Producer), Ford I. Beebe (Screenwriter), Alan Ludwig (Short Story Author), Ernest W. Miller (Cinematographer) --- released September 5,1935 --- This is Gene Autry's first picture for Republic, and also the first directing job at Republic for long-time Autry and Roy Rogers director, Joseph Kane --- Gene solves the murder of his father, rights the wrongs attributed to his old friend, and gets both the horse and the girl - all in just over one hour --- The substance of the dispute is over water rights: a very real part of the history of the American West --- the singing cowboy returning home after a five-year absence to find his father murdered and his old pal charged with the crime --- Gene is sure he's innocent, so he teams with sidekick Smiley Burnette to find the real killer --- The supporting cast is very good, however, including a beardless George pre-"Gabby" Hayes (he does sport a walrus moustache, however) as the leader of the medicine show: "Where's the nearest waterhole so I can mix up a batch of dope?
