Meet Gene Autry Contest (1946)

This vintage theatrical commercial announces an upcoming "Meet Gene Autry" contest that was shown in theaters in 1946. The winner would get to meet Gene Autry in person, have lunch with him, get a personalized autographed photo, and attend the rodeo at Madison Square Garden as his guest. The World's Championship Rodeo was scheduled from October 8th to October 26th. This is a wonderful vintage clip and most certainly an exciting contest for all of the kids.
