Description by OLDIES.com:

Friends don't let friends marry golddiggers. So a pal (Edward Everett Horton) whisks Manhattan Madness critic Larry MacArthur (Pat O'Brien) 3,000 miles away from a husband-hunting honey to the sun, song and gaming of Agua Caliente. What neither gent knows is that performer Rita Gomez (Dolores del Rio) is there -- and she'd love to get revenge for the unfair critical slam Larry gave her New York City tour.

Silliness shines in In Caliente, a musical comedy whose Busby Berkeley numbers include the horses and hordes of "Muchacha" and the elegant "The Lady in Red," a tune used often in Warner Bros. cartoons and rendered here in a way that's "perfectly photographed and really a thing of beauty" (Frank S. Nugent, The New York Times).

Product Description:

Per its title, this merry Warner Bros. musical was filmed on location in the resort community of Agua Caliente. Pat O'Brien plays magazine editor Larry MacArthur, whose scathingly negative review of tempestuous dancer La Espanita (Dolores Del Rio) has incurred the lady's considerable wrath. Through a fluke, MacArthur finds himself in Caliente, where he begins ardently pursuing the lovely Rita Gomez, not realizing -- at least at first -- that Rita and La Espanita are one in the same. Intending to humiliate MacArthur, Rita relents when she realizes she's fallen for him as well. Of the supporting players, only Edward Everett Horton is given any worthwhile material, and he makes the most of it. The Busby Berkeley dance numbers are okay, but the film's musical highlight is Wini Shaw's rendition of "The Lady in Red", followed by Judy Canova's semi-parody version of the same tune.
