Pretty darn good cast for a seemingly quickie movie

There was a lot of potential for this movie.

With a very good cast and a fair-to-middling script, great desert scenery and that wonderful Cisco Kid soundtrack, this movie would have been a lot better if the copy I bought had been three or four generations newer.

Still, it had many more good points than bad.

It's a shame that some childish and knuckle-headed viewers want to make silly comments about the title, and I hope more mature and grown-up viewers will just remember the date and context -- and the English language -- and sit back and enjoy this movie.

Except for the quality of the DVD, the worst aspect was learning, right after seeing the film and coming to this site, that Fred Crane had died.

I had met him in Los Angeles while he was an announcer on the mourned and lamented KFAC, the commercial classical-music radio station.

Then I had lived about 20 miles from him in Georgia, and didn't know it!

He was a very charming man, with a beautiful radio voice and commanding radio presence.

He has only a small role in "The Gay Amigo" (just a pointless generic title, anyway), but it makes me wish he had done many more.
