To win Lynn Bari, Warner Baxter recovers her grandad's ranch from devious Robert Barrat
1 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Return of the Cisco Kid" is smooth and agreeable story-telling at its best. It's like a purring engine that gets you from here to there with nary a bump in the road. Very attractive twilight black and white photography mixes outdoor locations with occasional studio sets, quite elaborate at times. Tight budgets made it necessary in those days. The cast is professional and skilled.

Baxter, not a standard leading man, nevertheless always had the capacity to lead a movie. Henry Hull does his irascible character. He's up against the one-man town of Robert Barrat who has cheated him out of his ranch. Hull's granddaughter is Lynn Bari, whom Baxter loves; and to get her he vows to get the ranch back. We wait to see how he'll handle Barrat and a big gang, when he only has two humorous sidekicks, a slim Cesar Romero and a rotund Chris-Pin Martin. Baxter may love Bari, but she loves Kane Richmond, who was representing Hull and whom Barrat has jailed. How Baxter handles this makes for an interesting sub-plot that ties into the main plot nicely.

We wonder who directed this nugget, and it was Herbert I. Leeds who began as a film editor. Milton Sperling wrote it.
