Below Average Entry in Cisco Kid Series
17 May 2003 | by (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

"South of the Rio Grande" is an entry from the first series of Cisco Kid westerns starring Duncan Renaldo. It is more of a musical than an action piece and most of the "action" takes place indoors.

The film starts out with Renaldo serenading a senorita and is followed by several songs sung by "saloon girl" Armida and heroine Lillian Molien. The story involves Cisco posing as a senior military officer to get the goods on bandito Sanchez (George J. Lewis) who has been murdering the local ranchers and stealing their cattle.

In this series Martin Garralaga played "Pancho". He does OK but suffers in comparison to the later "Pancho", Leo Carillo. Also in the cast is Charlie Stevens.

This film is available on DVD along with "The Girl From San Lorenzo" (1950), an episode from The Cisco Kid TV series and a delightful interview with Duncan Renaldo.
