If you are looking for deep, hit the Atlantic. "The Cisco Kid and the Lady" is a lighthearted western, one of many flicks about the O Henry western hero.
Cesar Romero looks and acts the part and act is the proper word since, in real life, "The Cisco Kid and the Man" would be more appropriate.
Still, his performance, like his hair and teeth, is perfect. He seems to have enjoyed himself, and all can enjoy veteran Chris Pin Martin as the Kid's answer to Gabby Hayes and Smiley Burnette (with whom I had the pleasure of spending a day).
One of the interesting things about the picture is that it is early George Montgomery. He looks like a western high school senior.
The ladies are pretty, the kid is cute, the horses are well groomed. There is not much action, but there is a good story and it is a fun way to spend about 75 minutes.
In this picture, as in a later one, Romero is quite a 'joker'.
