South of the Border is a 1939 musical western directed by George Sherman that stars the famous singing cowboy Gene Autry. Autry plays a Federal Agent who has been sent to Mexico to prevent foreign powers from taking control of Mexican oil refineries and fomenting revolution amongst the Mexican people. Autry is sent to Mexico along with his sidekick Frog (played, of course, by Smiley Burnette). While in Mexico Autry falls in love with Senorita Dolores (played by Lupita Tovar) but mist leave for the island of Palermo. On Palermo Dolores's uncle, Don Diego, is getting stopped from taking his cattle to market by foreign agents who have co-opted Dolores's brother Andreo into joining them. Gene and his men then try to load the cattle into a cargo ship but are attacked by Andreo and the revolutionaries. This film is very much a propaganda piece and was released just before World War II. It was the start of Autry's long and successful career as a singing cowboy.moreless
