1901: Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders have just returned from Cuba and are now in charge of the border between the USA and Mexico ... where a guy called Arizona Jack (William Pawley) is into bankrobbing and stuff big time - but unfortunately the US-border patrol can't do anything because after every heist he and his gang retreat over the border to Mexico, and the head of the Mexican border patrol Don Enriguez (Duncan Renaldo) won't allow the US-border patrol over the border.

Somehow though Rough Riders Roy Rogers (guess what, played by Roy Rogers) and Rusty (Eddie Acuff) as well as Dorothy (Mary Hart) - who is supposed to marry Lanning (George Meeker), manager of her father's (Guy Usher) goldmine but of course falls in love with Roy -  get caught up in all of this, and eventually Roy sees just one way to successfully investigate on both sides of the border, and that's being kicked out of the border patrol ...

And wouldn't you know it, eventually Roy manages to uncover Lanning as a partner of Arizona Jack and of course - witht he help of the Rough Riders - manages to bring them both to justice while he - naturally - gets the firl in the end.

And Don Enriguez ?

Since all the baddies are brought to justice he decides to overlook the little incident in the name of peace between the two nations ...

 

Roy Rogers' early Westerns for Republic are probably also his best ones, because they are more focussed on plot than on singing (though Roy does sing a few tunes in this one too) or his horse, amd because they don't resemble Western-revues (not that there's necessarily anything wrong with that), and Rough Riders' Round-up is probably one of his best films from that era, a B-Western full of tension, action and a few interesting plottwists. Of yourse, the film is no masterpiece (none of Roy's films were), but solid B-Western entertainment..
