Just as Harbison kills a miner, Cisco and Gordito arrive and the dying miner rips his map into three pieces. Harbison tries to get the other two pieces but Cisco continues to outwit him. When Cisco takes the map from Billie who took it from Harbison, she identifies him and he is jailed. Having a change of heart she has a plan to get him out and he has a plan to trap Harbison.

Amigo, if the young lady refuses to say, "I do," shoot the gentleman in the leg.
And if the gentleman refuses to say, "I do," shoot him in the other leg. It only comes twice in the ceremony, no?
Good! He's got enough legs.

I grew up with Duncan Renaldo as O. Henry's The Cisco Kid and and Leo Carillo as his sidekick Pancho, so watching toothy Caesar Romero in the title role and Chris-Pin Martin as his sidekick "Gordito," came as quite a shock. I have also seen Warner Baxter as the Kid, but for me, Renaldo will always be Cisco. This lighthearted romp, little more than a filler piece, has Cisco rescuing a baby and keeping the bad guys at bay. Very little action. Mostly, we watch Romero grin his way through a series of scenes, including a badly staged dance number that seems to go on forever. I am trying to remember if this Cisco Kid ever took his hat off for anything. This is a historic curiosity rather than a must-see. Future cowboy star and one of Dinah Shore's spouses, George Montgomery, costars.
