In Old Santa Fe is a 1934 American Western film directed by David Howard, starring Ken Maynard and George "Gabby" Hayes, and featuring the first screen appearance of Gene Autry, singing a bluegrass rendition of "Wyoming Waltz" accompanied by Smiley Burnette on accordion. Although both Autry and Burnette were unbilled, the scene served as a screen test for the duo for subsequent singing cowboy films, beginning with The Phantom Empire (1935), which was Autry's first leading role.

Based on a story by Wallace MacDonald and John Rathmell, the film is about a cowboy who loses his horse in a rigged horse race and gets framed for the murder of a stagecoach driver. The film was shot on location in Kentucky and Keystone Studios in California. The picture's leading lady was Evalyn Knapp.
