Movie "Indian Territory" vs. "Arizona"
I watched the movie Arizona from 1940, starring Jean Arthur and William Holden.
A scene in the movie had a cattle herd being stampeded by Indians. William Holden had the cowboys turn the herd against the Indians. Later, the cattle were herded through the town.
In the movie, Indian Territory 1950, the same scenario was used by Gene Autry, to turn the stampeding herd into the charging Indians. He, also, convinced the owner of the herd to drive the herd through town.
Because I saw the movies on back-to-back days, it became clear to me the scenes used were exactly the same in each movie. Even the scene, of the Indian camp, before the stampede, were the same.
Is it possible that Autry "stole" the scenes from Arizona and used the same footage in his movie, Indian Territory? I saw nothing in the credits of Indian Territory, referencing the use of clips from the movie, Arizona.
