Eduardo Belmonte overhears his new step-mother, Maria, and her lover, Don Ricardo Gonzales plotting to take over the Belmonte rancho on the night of the fiesta given by her husband, Don Carlos Belmonte. Eduardo offers Maria money if she will depart the hacienda premises, but she refuses and then accuses Eduardo of making love to her. The old Don doesn't take kindly to his son hitting on his step-mother and attacks him in a rage. The lights go out, the father is killed and Maria blames Eduardo, who escapes from the house, chased by Ricardo's men. The Cisco Kid and Pancho rescue Eduardo, who has been shot, and hide him while they investigate. Cisco discovers that bullets from Maria's gun, a handy little derringer, are the same type that killed Don Carlos. But the Alcalde arrests Cisco and Pancho, and Cisco is "supposedly" executed by a firing squad, but IS NOT shot and escapes by a trick. And now Maria and Ricardo are in real trouble with Cisco on the loose. Written by Les Adams <>

Cisco vs. The Black Widow!
31 May 2007 | by (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

"Robin Hood of Monteray" was an entry in Monogram's Cisco Kid series starring Glibert Roland as Cisco. In an effort to spice up the series we see the welcome return of the Pancho character in the person of veteran character actor Chris Pin-Martin. Gone is Cisco's gang and his former partner "Baby".

The plot of this one concerns evil stepmother Maria Belmonte and her "cousin" Don Ricardo Gonzoles (Jack LaRue) to take over the rancho of Don Carlos Belmonte (Pedro de Cordoba). Don Carlos son Eduardo (Travis Kent) overhears the plot. Maria and Don Ricardo frame Eduardo for the murder of the old man. Eduardo is engaged to servant girl Lolita (Donna Martel).

Cisco and Pancho listen to Eduardo's story after rescuing him from pursuers and decide to help. Cisco discovers with the help of the local Alcalde (Nestor Paiva) that the bullet that killed Don Carlos came from a derringer and not the gun that Eduardo was found with.

While trying to prove Eduardo's innocence, Cisco manages to get himself arrested and "executed", then.............................

As with most of the films in this series, this one was plagued with a weak script. It does have, however, a better than normal supporting cast. Chris Pin-Martin makes an affable Pancho, Nestor Paiva as the bumbling Alcalde steals the picture. The sinister Brent and veteran heavy LaRue have little to do unfortunately. And there was minimal action as well.

Weak low budget "B" oater.
