An American Western serial film, directed by Otto Brower and B. Reeves Eason in 1935. Made in 12 chapters, the serial combines Western, musical and fantasy elements. It was Gene Autry’s first starring role, playing himself as a singing cowboy. Betsy, Frankie and Gene are kidnapped by Thunder Riders from the empire of Murania, situated deep below the ranch. The technologically advanced culture features towering buildings, robots, ray-guns, futuristic television and elevator tubes that extend miles below the surface. It is ruled by the icy, blonde, evil Queen Tika. Whatever happens during an episode, Gene Autry must get back to the ranch to deliver his daily musical broadcast. Filmed on location in California at Agoura Ranch, Bronson Canyon, Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles, Iverson Ranch and at Keystone Studios.
