Lots of talk and Indian tribal dancing and stuff before Carolina gets around to shooting Kilgrain and Gene and Pat round up the rest of the gang. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A singing cowboy to the rescue.
13 December 2003 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

No where close to classic, but evocative of Saturday morning at the movies. Ridin', shootin', singin' and Indian uprisings. Gene Autry never lets you down. His movies are simple and very predictable. APACHE COUNTRY is no different. Gene's sidekick Pat Buttram joins Mary Scott, Francis X. Bushman, Carolina Cotton and Iron Eyes Cody in this sagebrush drama. 62 minutes of wholesome escape.
