Storyline

The Cisco Kid is captured while keeping a rendezvous with cantina dancer Dolores but is released by his captor, the commander of a U.S. Army regiment, to help break up a kidnap ring. On his way to Las Tables with his pal, Gordito, he makes a stop at the Martinez Rancho, where they learn that his friend Carlos has been kidnapped, from his wife Marquerita. At the Crystal Palace Saloon, Cisco runs into an old girlfriend, Sally, who he once jilted for a tight-rope walker, but she doesn't betray him when the sheriff and an army officer enter searching for Cisco. While Cisco and the easily-forgiving Sally dance, the heads of the kidnap gang, the sheriff, Clark and Redge, meet upstairs to discuss the plans for collecting the $50,000 ransom they have on Carlos. Cisco follows the kidnappers after they collect the ransom money, but before he can do anything about it, he is arrested and thrown in jail. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

This final appearance by Cesar Romero has a lot of dancing!
18 January 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is just an okay outing for Cesar Romero as 'The Cisco Kid'. I say okay because it's the last appearance by Romero as the character...and I wanted more! Also, unfortunately, instead of punching folks in the face or shooting his enemies, this time you find the Kid dancing...a lot!

When the film begins, Cisco is captured by the US Army and the Commander has an interesting proposition--that Cisco should work for the government to find out who's behind a string of kidnappings. But, to do this, they have to make it look like Cisco and Gordito escape from prison...which soon occurs. What follows is a lot of romancing and dancing and the like.

This isn't a bad film, as it's hard to imagine Romero ever making a bad film because he's such a likable actor. But there isn't a lot of depth to this one and it's sad that this is Romero's swan song to the franchise...he could have been given better material.
