Estelita Rodriguez, Republic's south-of-the-border answer to their own Judy Canova, stars in Havana Rose. Rodriguez plays Estelita DeMarco, the daughter of foreign Ambassador DeMarco (Fortunio Bonanova), who is looking for a way to raise $5,000,000 for his poverty-stricken South American country. Just when Ambassador DeMarco is on the verge of securing a loan from eccentric millionaire Filbert Fillmore (Hugh Herbert) and his haughty wife (Florence Bates), Estelita messes up the deal. With the help of Texas rancher Tex Thompson (Bill Williams), our heroine manages to mollify Fillmore and his wife and save the day. Havana Rose is highlighted by three Latin American musical numbers, all of which are a lot livelier than the rest of the film.
