COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS
Director (feature film)
Disney version of fairy tale "Jack and the Beanstalk", featuring Mickey, Donald and Goofy in the main roles. Also contains another short film, re-released as "Bongo"
Radio star Gene Autry (Gene Autry) returns to his home town of Gold Ridge at the request of his old friend Pop Harrison (Forrest Taylor), who wants Gene to straighten out his wayward son, Tex Harrison (James Seay), whose gambling and drinking threaten to bankrupt the rodeo organization which he heads. News photographer Clementine "Clem" Benson (Fay McKenzie) and reporter Hack Hackett (Chick Chandler) are ordered to follow Gene. The group finds quarters at the "Bar Nothing" dude ranch, winter quarters for Tex's rodeo group, and Tex soon tangles with Hackett in a quarrel. The latter wins a thousand-dollar bag of gold from Sunrise (Olin Holwin), a miner who has earned his stake digging in the supposedly abandoned mine beneath Gold Ridge. Hackett spots a fugitive Chicago racketeer, Crowley (George Douglas), who is hiding out from the mob he has double-crossed. During a "Frontier Days" celebration, Hackett is killed and the sheriff (Hal Price) orders an investigation of all the guns of the performers, who were using blanks, and Tex's gun is found with live ammunition and he is charged with murder because of the earlier quarrel. Gene suspects Crowley as he learns of his real background, but the true killer is neither Tex nor Crowley.
As foreman of a dude ranch, Gene has two problems. One is a guest, the spoiled daughter of a millioniare, and the other is the disgruntled ex-foreman that Gene replaced, now just a ranch hand. Gene eventually gets the daughter straightened out but has to fire the ex-foreman and this leads to trouble when he returns intent on revenge.
Shag Johnson (Morgan Conway), owner of the Johnson Brothers Rodeo, has been trying for years to gain control of the World-Wide Wild West Show managed by Jennifer Benton (Virginia Grey), by fair means or foul. Gene Autry (Gene Autry) and Frog Millhouse (Smiley Burnette) arrive on the scene during a battle between the two rival shows and rescue Pa (Licien Littlefield) and Ma McCracken (Claire DuBrey) from an attack by Johnson's hired henchmen. All hands are carted off to jail, and great crowds are attracted there by Gene's singing, and Pa McCracken decides to add the singing cowboy to his World-Wide show. He does and Gene skyrockets the box-office receipts, which enrages Johnson since it appears certain that World Wide will be able to secure the contract for the annual Capistrano festival and the following Madison Square Garden rodeo. Gene refuses Johnson's offer of $10,000 per week to change shows, and Shag hires Jenkins to burn the Capistrano set-up to the ground. Pa McCracken is seriously injured and Gene learns that only a specialist from the east can save him, and his fee is $5,000. He accepts Johnson's offer in order to pay the doctor, and Jennifer is heartbroken over his apparent disloyalty. At Johnson's show, however, Gene learns of Johnson's duplicity, forces confessions from Shag and Jenkins, makes the former pay Pa's doctor bill and release Gene from his contract.
Gene is a government inspector looking into what's killing cattle. The ranchers want to burn the area to clear of a poisonous weed, but Gene favors chemical spray from an airplane.
