Storyline

Cavalry scouts Gene Autry (Gene Autry) and Pat Buttram (Pat Buttram) are ordered by the President (of the whole U.S. of A.) to break up an Arizona frontier ring which uses Indian raids to cover up its bandit activities. Carolina Cotton (Carolina Cotton) works with Gene and Pat, seeking revenge against the gang's leader, Dave Kilgrain (Harry Lauter) , who murdered her father. 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>

Captain Autry on a special mission
26 November 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Apache Country finds Captain Gene Autry on a special mission out west to find out who is stirring up the Apaches now that Geronimo is retired from warmaking. He's to pretend he's now retired from the Army and he and Pat Buttram are to pretend to be looking for ranch property to settle down in.

The head of this scheme is Harry Lauter and I have to say it's an interesting one. He's the one supplying weaponry and whiskey to the Apache and he wants them stirred. I won't reveal it, but he's got a nice deal cooked up with them for his own outlaw band.

Of course what Lauter wants could not happen without the connivance of the Indian agent and Sydney Mason along with his daughter Mary Scott is most conniving.

Unlike his number one rival Roy Rogers who featured of course Dale Evans and other female musical performers as leading ladies, Autry usually didn't in his films. This one is a glorious exception with Carolina Cotton as a singing and shooting Annie Oakley type. No romance though is written in the script for them.

Apache Territory is a nice Gene Autry western both dramatically and musically.
