Storyline

Wealthy and respected rancher Don Fernando de Vega fears for the future of his ranch after his death and sends for his grandson, Carlos Hernandez. Carlos is waylaid on his journey and seriously wounded. The famous bandit, the Cisco Kid, discovers that he is an exact double for the wounded Carlos. Cisco decides to "inherit" the ranch himself, and passes himself off as the long-awaited Carlos. But he discovers that Don Fernando's ostensibly loyal nephew Ricardo is plotting to inherit the ranch himself, and the attack on Carlos was Ricardo's first attempt to do so. Now Ricardo faces a healthy and unwounded "Carlos," and the Cisco Kid comes to respect the ailing Don Fernando so much that he considers saving the ranch not for himself but for Don Fernando's intended heir.

How Did I Get In This Handbasket and Where Are We Going?
15 August 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Cisco and Pancho (played by the always amusing Cesar Romero and Chris-Pin Martin), wander into the third movie version of a pretty good novel set among aristocratic Mexicans. Charles G. Clarke's camera work is sharp and beautiful, but while the movie is always interesting, the various elements don't gel perfectly: Cisco and Pancho go about their part of the movie as if it is a comedy, and the rest of the cast is dealing with real problems.

Still, Fox turned out the most sumptuous of B movies during this period, and you can spend your time just looking at the pictures -- the rescuing of the runaway stagecoaches, the agave plants by the edge of the canyons, the musical numbers or the sharply low lit portrait shots. That is a lot of fun in itself.
