BUCK ROGERS with six shooters and singing men on horses.
9 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

This was the classic tale of GENE AUTRY and his singing horse routine as he tried to cash in on the BUCK ROGERS serials which were popular at this time. Autry a rip off artist???, far from it. THE PHANTOM EMPIRE, was just another hollywoods studio system attempt to cash in on the serialized science fiction trend of the 1930's and 40's (they do this to this day). The notable changes in the autry venture was the addition of singing cowboy autry, horses and convnetional "old west" firearms to battle a supernatural science fiction menace. Before HARLEY DAVIDSON AND THE MARLBORO MAN or WESTWORLD decades later, Autry and the produtcion staff behind him meshed science fiction and old west films genres for a popular weekly serial which featured a female lead villain. A interesting old film serial edited here. Of note is the interest to Autry fans and wild west and science fiction fans alike.
