Same film, different titles
27 April 2000 | by (Greensburg, PA) – See all my reviews

This was the 2nd MEXICAN SPITFIRE film that I saw and, although I loved MEXICAN SPITFIRE OUT WEST (my 1st)this film and every other subsequent MEXICAN SPITFIRE seemed like I already saw it... talk about beating a dead horse. Lupe Valez is comic as can be as Carmelitta, and teaming her up with Leon Errol makes for a great comedy team. It is a shame that the Lord Epping theme was over worked or this entire series would rate an 8 with me. If you've seen one, You've seen them all.
