September comes and summer rides into the sunset. Youngsters begin another school year and you can feel Fall in the air. And of course September marks the beginning of another season of terrific B-Westerns at The Western Film Preservation Society.

As is the club’s tradition, September is not only the kickoff for a new year, but also Gene Autry celebration month. This month we celebrate Gene’s 105th birthday.

The lineup for our September 20 meeting is:
“South Of The Border” with Gene, Smiley Burnette, June Storey and Lupita Tovar from 1939.

Our serial this season, “The Phantom Empire” also features Gene, with Frankie Darro and Betsy King Ross.
