In Old Caliente (1939)

An American western musical directed by Joseph Kane, starring Roy Rogers.
A singing cowboy is accused of wrongdoing that he did not do and is imprisoned in the basement of a wealthy landowner. The landowner is about to let him out to hear his story when the landowner is shot. Thinking that the cowboy is now a murderer, the landowner's son chases him as harriers seek a golden orb.
The plot was extremely vague and not communicated clearly. The main characters were identifiable, but everyone else got lost in the shuffle. The musical numbers were dispersed tastefully throughout the film and other characters sang with the cowboy. The style was very much of the times, video had some underexposures and the audio was a little scratchy in places. I rate it poor.
