Description by OLDIES.com:
Roy Rogers purchases a ranch in California with the intent of drilling for oil. Inadvertently, he finds rich oil deposits on the neighboring ranch of Carlos Vega. Roy is puzzled when Vega wants to sell the land to shady speculator Reed Calhoun, rather than cash in on the fortune. He discovers that Carlos is being blackmailed. The trail of clues leads to Calhoun's off shore gambling boat, where he believes he will find who is behind the extortion.
Cited by Quentin Tarantino as one of his favorites, prolific director William Witney's five decade career was highlighted by his work on serials, most notably Zorro's Fighting Legion (1939) and Drums Of Fu Manchu (1940). Witney developed the modern technique for filming fight sequences as a series of intricately choreographed shots, crediting Busby Berkeley as his inspiration.
Singing cowboy Roy Rogers and his ever-present female counterpart Dale Evans star in APACHE ROSE. Rogers plays an oil prospector who wants to drill on a patch on land in California. A group of villains, however, use devious means to bilk the landowner out of his property. His sister Billie (Evans) investigates and finds herself in grave danger, so she teams with Rogers to get the land back and expose the villains' treachery. APACHE ROSE combines Western-style action and justice with country musical numbers as only Roy Rogers and Dale Evans could.
