Gene and Frog head down to Mexico, hot on the trail of a group of swindlers who convince townspeople to invest in movies to be filmed on location in their town, and then skip out without making the films. Written by

TOPS EVERY OTHER AUTRY HIT - Gene in his most likeable role...more songs...more thrills...more beautiful senoritas...a glamorous screen production that gives the most in entertainment and fun! (original poster)
During the gunfight scene when one of the bad guys takes a shot at Pancho behind a tree, knocking his hat off, Pancho's horse is standing directly behind Pancho yet he doesn't get hit. See more »
Don't give me the salute, give me the news!
I'm sorry, Pancho. I don't find out anything.
Oh, you big disappointment. You don't find nothing? The next time there's nothing to be done, I do it myself.

This Gene Autry film was the first to use Faye McKenzie as Gene's leading lady, and she was excellent as Marie Elaina. Gene also was dashing as the movie's hero and the perfect gentleman. This movie included Smiley Burnette as Gene's usual side kick and Harold Huber as the duo's guide. You would not want to miss that comical combination. Another notable member of the cast is Duncan Renaldo who has a small role in this movie. He was also in other Gene Autry films and was later known for his role as the Cisco Kid. Last of all, the music in the movie was stunning. The title song "Down Mexico Way" was written by Michael Carr and Joseph Kennedy the same song writers that wrote "South of the Border" which is also sung in the movie. All around an excellent movie that no Gene Autry fan should miss.
