Overview

As in all his early westerns, Roy Rogers battles true Old West outlaws in the fine In Old Caliente. He is, as usual, Roy Rogers, but this time a trusted hand at the Olde California ranchero belonging to Don José (Frank Puglia). Unbeknownst to the Don, however, his "half-breed" foreman, Suguaro (Frank La Rue), is in league with Calkins (Harry Woods), the nasty Gringo behind a series of gold-shipment robberies. With Suguaro's help, Calkins manages to pin the crimes on Roy and Gabby (George "Gabby" Hayes) and the Don has them imprisoned. But Rita (Katherine DeMille), Don José's Eastern-bred daughter, believes them to be innocent and secures their release. The ensuing chase leads straight to the Pacific Ocean and the evil Suguaro is killed in the surf. Roy Rogers performs "Sundown on the Range," by Fred Rose, "The Moon, She Will be Shining Tonight" and, in a duet with George "Gabby" Hayes, "We're Not Coming Out Tonight," the latter two penned by Walter Samuels.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
Despite more often than not being filmed mere miles away, you rarely get a glimpse of the Pacific Ocean in a western. By necessity, of course, since most oaters ostensibly take place in Texas or Arizona or Utah. But In Old Caliente is set in California and what is more Californian, old and new, than the surf? Still and all, the mere sight of Roy Rogers and Trigger chasing Frank La Rue into the waves at what today is known as Leo Carrillo State Beach is a little bizarre. That aside, In Old Caliente has typically good production values and a solid story.
