Gene Autry Double Feature: Melody Trail and Gene Autry and the Mounties

Autry Museum of the American West

4700 Western Heritage Way, Los Angeles, 90027

12:00pm

Every other month, two Gene Autry films are screened in the Imagination Gallery’s Western Legacy Theater. August’s Gene Autry Double Feature theme is “The Dog Days of Summer.”
Towards the close of the "dog days of summer," the August Double Feature highlights two charismatic canines. In Melody Trail, Gene tangles with a kleptomaniac St. Bernard called Souvenir, and in Gene Autry and the Mounties, our hero must tame an outlaw Greenland Husky named King.

Melody Trail (1935)
Republic Pictures (60 minutes)

Synopsis:
When a gypsy steals his rodeo prize money, Gene Autry and pal, Frog Millhouse, hire on as ranch cooks and Gene is soon attracted to the rancher's daughter, the mischievous Millicent. Cowgirls have taken over for the cowboys, who are suspected of rustling cattle. Millicent's kleptomaniac St. Bernard, Souvenir, steals the gypsy's baby and confusion soon reigns as Millicent is mistaken for the infant's mother, the gypsies are mistaken for kidnapers, and the dog continues to pilfer things! Gene uses some modern tricks and sings a few songs to help the cowgirls capture the rustlers and ride the Melody Trail.

Gene Autry sings several songs including “Hold on Little Dogies Hold On” and “A Lone Cowboy on the Lone Prairie.”

Gene Autry and the Mounties (1951)
Columbia Pictures (71 minutes)

Synopsis:
Gene Autry is a fightin’ mad Montana marshal on a dead-or-alive manhunt seeking to recover U. S. gold bullion stolen by Canadian renegades who want to overthrow their government. Pursuing the bandits into Canada’s violence-riddled backwoods, Gene must straighten out a headstrong boy, tame an outlaw dog, and help a Mountie get his girl all while trying to recover the stolen bullion!

Gene sings “Blue Canadian Rockies” and “Onteora.”

FYF Fest!

Los Angeles Sports Arena

Los Angeles, CA 90037

2:00pm

In 2004, 18yr old Sean Carlson started FYF Fest.

As the years went on, with a small group of friends behind the wheel, the festival grew. Attendance increased and so did the size of the bands. With a need for more space the festival was moved from Echo Park to the Los Angeles State Historic Park in Chinatown. In 2011, Goldenvoice joined as a producer of the event.

Now in its 13th year, the FYF Fest will once again held at its new home, The LA Sports Arena & Exposition Park, and will be taking place on Saturday August 27th and Sunday August 28th.
