Storyline

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 <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

The Cisco Kid, One Rogue who thinks fast on his feet
10 October 2007 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

For one who grew up on Duncan Renaldo as the gallant Cisco Kid, Gilbert Roland was something of a revelation as a more of a roguish Cisco. Still because Gilbert Roland was an old favorite of mine among those famous character players of old Hollywood, I enjoyed Robin Hood of Monterey on its own terms.

Cisco's on the way to the home of an old caballero friend, Pedro De Cordoba and his new wife Evelyn Brent. But on the way he finds riders from the ranchero chasing DeCordoba's son, Travis Kent. Cisco has Kent pretend he's dead and finds out he was wanted for killing his father. Kent tells Cisco of the quarrel he and his father had.

Turns out that Cisco knows Brent from way back, she's quite the adventuress, a sort of South American spider woman. She's intriguing with De Cordoba's cousin Jack LaRue to take over the ranchero and won't let anything including Cisco stand in the way.

Roland's Cisco thinks pretty fast on his feet. He has to because in the short 57 minute running time, Roland has a couple of tight squeezes. Of course he's aided and abetted by his faithful companion Pancho, played in this case by Chris-Pin Martin. Martin's a bit more help than Leo Carrillo was with Renaldo. Still Pancho isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Of course Roland solves the mystery even to the satisfaction of Nestor Paiva who plays the slow witted alcalde of the local town. Here's a hint; forensics has a lot to do with deciding what really happened to DeCordoba.

Robin Hood of Monterey is your average B western from Monogram and of course Gilbert Roland is always a delight in any film.
