Sioux City Sue ★★ 1946

Talent scouts looking to cast a western musical find Autry, then trick him into being the voice of a singing donkey in an animated production. But, the yodelin' cowboy belts out a number or two, and the poobahs give him the lead. Singin' and fancy ridin' abound in Autry's first post-WWII role. 69m/B VHS, DVD . Gene Autry, Lynne Roberts, Sterling Holloway, Richard Lane, Ralph Sanford, Kenneth Lundy, Pierre Watkin; D: Frank McDonald; W: Olive Cooper; C: Reggie Lanning; M: R. Dale Butts.
