Trivia

This film is essentially Gene Autry's screen test. After Ken Maynard's quarrelsomeness got him fired by Mascot Pictures' head Nat Levine, Autry won his first starring role in The Phantom Empire (1935), originally intended to star Maynard. Many years later Autry quietly helped support Maynard when he was old, broke and alcoholic. See more »
