The Cisco Kid wants to collect the reward for catching the Cisco Kid?! Huh?!
18 January 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, the Cisco Kid is NOT at all pleased because all sorts of robberies are occurring and they are being attributed to him! But he hasn't done any of these and wants to clear his name...as well as collect the reward for capturing the real robbers who are also driving nice people off their land. The trail leads to a town run by a crooked judge and his gang of crooks...but how to prove it?! One thing he CAN prove is that when one of the robberies is occurring, he was in town minding his own business.

In addition to solving the crime, the Kid and Gordito also help a widow and her son who have been grossly overcharged by the general store and he chases a few skirts...as usual. By the way, folks posing as the Kid and committing crimes occurred in several films, such as Cesar Romero's final film in the series, "Ride On Vaquero".
