Under Mexicali Stars (1950) Poster

This film is so filled with modern trappings (1950's) and gimmicks that it appears to have been intended for Roy Rogers and is written in the typical take-no-prisoners style of toughness ... See full summary »

| Joint American/Mexican Investigation into Counterfeiting
This Republic picture outing for Rex Allen does have the look and feel of a Roy Rogers film from its modern setting down to the fact that Rex yodels during his singing of one of the songs. Of course no one could ever yodel like Roy Rogers.

Rex and sidekick Buddy Ebsen are a pair of treasury agents who are on the trail of counterfeiters who are stealing gold and transporting it across the Mexican border and are doing it in a most ingenious manner that I cannot reveal lest it spoil your viewing pleasure. Rex first ingratiates himself with mine owner Percy Helton and daughter Dorothy Patrick and then with the gang as he pretends to be a well known counterfeiter escaped from the federal penitentiary at Leavenworth.

Perennial western villain Roy Barcroft is here for the gang muscle work and Frank Ferguson is the counterfeiter/engraver. What they are doing is counterfeiting Mexican gold coins with real gold on Mexican soil which does bring their police into the investigation as played by Alberto Morin.

Allen sings some fairly forgettable songs. He was the last of the Republic singing cowboys, but after Republic lost its battle with television westerns, Allen's career continued quite nicely as an actor and country recording artist. Under Mexicali Stars is a good example of his work in films.

Would You Watch 'Crazy Rich Avengers'?

Captain Marvel star Gemma Chan would ... so she created the ultimate Crazy Rich Asians crossover, and even assigned Avengers roles to co-stars like Henry Golding.
