In Old Caliente is a 1939 American Western film directed by Joseph Kane and starring Roy Rogers.


Set after California's Statehood but before the America Civil War, Roy Rogers is working for a wealthy Spanish family. One of their men is secretly betraying the arrival of targets of opportunity to a group of Anglo American bandits but puts the blame on Roy.
