Defamation of his people
8 October 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

One thing the Cisco Kid will not stand for is a defamation of his people. So when some Americanos dress up as Mexicans and start bandit activity in southern Arizona he springs into action.

At the same time that Duncan Renaldo and Leo Carrillo were starting their weekly television series which I remember so well as a little kid, they also did some feature films of which The Gay Amigo is the first. The title does not refer to Cisco's sexual orientation which was straight.

At the time that Cisco discovers the masquerade the army isn't sure he's not the leader. They assign Sergeant Joe Sawyer to bird dog Cisco and Pancho. He actually proves useful, but only after Cisco thoroughly manipulates him.

There's a bit more plot than usual in this western meant for the kid trade. It still holds up well and Renaldo is one engaging fellow in the lead.
