Today’s movie, the third in our First Annual Movies at the Museum series featuring Olde-Tyme Classic Western movies is the 1940 Ronald Reagan classic “The Santa Fe Trail”, in which Reagan plays George Custer, who in 1854, was sent to Kansas with fellow West Pointer Jeb Stuart, to make the territory safe for railroad crews to construct the railroad to Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The movie is preceded by the 4th installment of the Rin Tin Tin serial “The Lone Defender“, in which our canine hero is caught in the middle of a fight between the bad guys and the good guys over a secret gold mine that was owned by the dog’s late owner.
