Cesar Romero debuts as the Cisco Kid
5 August 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Cesar Romero made his debut playing The Cisco Kid in The Cisco Kid And The Lady. It should more properly be The Cisco and the two Ladies because he woos both Saloon entertainer Virginia Field and schoolteacher Marjorie Weaver in this film.

It doesn't start this way, but Cesar Romero and his Sancho Panza Chris- Pin Martin come across a dying miner coming into file a claim with his infant son. Cisco rescues the infant and the dying man splits up the mine map three ways between Cisco, Gordito and Robert Barrat not realizing it was Barrat who shot him.

Romero is fast on his feet in many way. This film features him doing the tango with Field, he started out as a dancer in show business. He does a nice job of balancing two women Field and Weaver until George Montgomery arrives on the scene as Weaver's fiancé from Kansas City. This film was one of Montgomery's earliest featured roles. And Romero has to keep his wits about him when dealing with Barrat who is a shrewd adversary.

This film marked Romero's interpretation of the Cisco Kid as a gallant knight of the plains with an eye for the ladies. This is one cowboy who's not satisfied kissing his horse.

Romero has charm to spare in keeping the audience rooting for him. After 75 years he still does.
