Movie Info

This somewhat obscure early musical western produced by George W. Weeks for poverty row's Sono Art-World Wide has gone down in film history as Myrna Loy's talkie debut. Loy and Carmelita Geraghty played South-of-the-Border Belles dallying with notorious bandit El Malo (Jose Bohr) who, of course, is actually a sagebrush Robin Hood. In between stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, El Malo unmasks the nasty sheriff of Sierra Blanco (Walter Miller) as a real crook who keeps the loot for himself. This technically deficient early talkie was the English language debut of German-born Chilean actor-director Bohr. Bohr's stay in Hollywood proved brief but he continued to direct and star in South American productions until the 1960s.

Audience Reviews for Rogue of the Rio Grande


Myrna is so young and pretty but with a terrible phony accent and the movie surrounding her is a heap of junk that would be completely forgotten but for her presence and its status as her talkie debut. If you're a Myrna completist it's worth watching once but all others beware.
