Fast B
19 February 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This, the fourth episode in Twentieth-Century-Fox's B series of the Cisco Kid, has Cesar Romero pretending to be dead, aided by a grave and a man who claim to have killed the Kid. The story is well done -- Fox's B unit was probably the best among the majors at this period -- and Edward Cronjager's usual excellent cinematography -- lots of process shots and a tremendous number of basic two-shots -- is handsome without being intrusive.

I am mildly surprised that the Fox Movie Channel is running these amusing little second features so freely -- an attempt by them to run some Charlie Chan movies a couple of years ago raised a lot of fuss about stereotypes: one would not, of course, wish to show movies that implied that an ethnic Chinese man would automatically be the smartest person in the room, or that his U.S.-born children would act like American kids.
