The Cisco Kid tells his pal Gordito that "From now on, Amigo, I am through with women" and then a few minutes later, after rescuing Joan Allen from an attempted stage holdup, tells her "...but you, senorita, you are different!" and therein lies the short summary of all of the films in the 20th Century-Fox Cisco Kid series. The padded plot, so exhibitors could tell the entries apart, finds Towash, Texas saloon owner Hank Gunther plotting with Jesse Allen, Joan's father, to rob the money missed on the aborted stage holdup from the express company safe rather than report empty-handed to the "Boss".

Viva Cisco Kid finds Cesar Romero as the famous bandit once again stopping to do a good turn for a lady. In this case the lady is Jean Rogers and along for the ride is Chris-Pin Martin as Gordito.
Romero prevents a stagecoach holdup where Rogers is a passenger and prevents bandits led by Stanley Fields. What they don't know, but soon learn is that Jean's father Minor Watson is an express company employee in league with the bandits.
I like Romero's interpretation of the part. His Cisco Kid is charming and breezy and never loses his cool under some extreme provocation at times. He's not a G-rated Cisco like Duncan Renaldo. Both of them however keep their sidekicks around for laughs. Poor Chris-Pin Martin, he can't do anything right. In fact Stanley Fields who likes practical jokes, exploding cigars, whoopee cushions and the like, makes him the butt of a lot and even Romero gets a laugh from it.
Of course Fields plays one too many jokes and it spells the end.
