Early in the story, when Roy is shot in the shoulder by one of the bad guys and then rescued by Nicci Lopez, he removes his shirt to tend to the wound and there's no blood, not even a bullet wound. See more »
Roy Rogers is a Sheriff who must catch airplane saboteurs. Mr. Rogers is also a singling cowboy. Tito Guizar is Bullfighter Nicci Lopez. Mr. Guizar is also a singing cowboy. As "The Gay Ranchero" of the title, Guizar seems to have more to do than Rogers. Andy Devine (as "Cookie") works at the Manzanita Springs Airline being sabotaged, and helps out singling cowboys out - and, gets helped out during the bull session. Bob Nolan and the Sons of the Pioneers add songs and laughs.
This film seems to be an attempt to cross-over the audiences of American singing cowboy star Roy Rogers and Mexican singing cowboy star Tito Guizar. Or, it may be an attempt to introduce the Mexican singing cowboy star to Rogers' U.S. audience. The resulting film is like two partial movies, either of which are very good. The cowboy stars never really operate/act as a "team"; they have little rapport, and few opportunities to show any.
