Description by

Notorious bandit El Malo robs the Sierra Blanca Bank in broad daylight. The outlaw, famed for sharing his "earnings" with the poor, is insulted when he sees the wanted poster. The reward is a mere $1000 and his strikingly handsome features have been totally misrepresented. Outraged, El Malo is determined to teach the sheriff respect. But his plans are waylaid when he stops at the cantina and is smitten by gorgeous dancer Carmita. Within minutes, the bandit steals Carmita from her lover. Humiliated, the spurned paramour hatches a plot to murder El Malo.

Rogue of the Rio Grande is notable for being Myrna Loy's first "talking" picture. After appearing in some 80 films, Myrna finally achieved stardom with her portrayal of Nora Charles in The Thin Man (1934). In 1937 and 1938 she was one of the 10 top earning stars in Hollywood. Her career halted during WWII when she devoted herself to the American Red Cross. Her talents enriched many classics including The Great Ziegfeld (1936), The Best Years Of Our Lives (1946), Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House (1948). She earned an Academy Award for "career achievement" in 1991.

Bonus shorts:

  • A 1930s parody trailer titled "Then Came the Yawn."
  • A man demonstrates his bizarre ability to play music with his hands.
