Roy Rogers is the foreman at Don José's (Frank Puglia) ranch, and even though Don José mistrusts all gringos, he has accepted Rogers like an own son ... until his son Carlos (Paul Marion) is held up by a bunch of gringos and the money he has just collected for Don José's cattle is stolen. Somehow, Don José blames gringo settlers led by Rogers best friend Gabby (Gabby hayes) for the hold-up and promptly fires Rogers, just for being friends with them.

Of course, the money was not stolen by the settlers but by gangster Curly's (Harry Woods) gang who got tipped off about the money by Don José's own Majordomo Suaro (Jack La Rue) ... who now tries everything to put the blame for the hold-up on Rogers and Gabby ... and eventually he succeeds and has Don José and company arrest the two of them.

Eventually though, Don José's daughter Rita (Katherine DeMille) and Rogers' girlfriend Jean (Mary Hart) manage to convince Don José to at least talk to his prisoners - but ultimately he is shot dead in cold blood by Suaro, who once more manages to put the blame on Rogers and Gabby, who only manage to escape with the help of Rita.

Carlos, convinced that Rogers has shot his dad, ultimately tracks him down, but Rogers manages to disarm Carlos, talk some sense into him, and then give him back his gun to decide for himself whether to shoot Rogers ... which of course he doesn't. Instead Carlos and his men plus Rogers, Gabby and the settlers make up a plan to trap Suaro, Curly and his gang, that involves a giant ball of pure gold and depends on the greed of the baddies.

Of course, ultimately the plan, silly as it is, works out just fine and all the villains get their just desserts while Rogers gets the girl (Jean that is) ...

 

Average B-Western that, apart from a ball of pure gold, offers nothing one hasn't seen elsewhere, and often better too. Not that In Old Caliente would be an especially bad film - Roy Rogers has acted in several worse movies - it's just nothing special either ...
