THE BIG SHOW (1936) featured a good look behind the scenes of its "big stage" Texas historical pageant "Cavalcade of Texas". Star Gene Autry once again mixed showbiz and cowboy adventure as he had before in PHANTOM EMPIRE, solving a crime as he performed. As he galloped across the giant stage in the pageant of Texas's six-flag history, he suddenly found himself in a real shootout and horseback chase.
At the Texas Centennial in Dallas Autry confuses two girls by being himself and his own stunt double.
