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.
