During the festivities the bank is robbed by the famous outlaw El Gallo and his bandits, on information learned from informant El Rataan. Facing bankruptcy and deportation, the three outlaws stage a series of robberies made to appear as though carried out by El Gallo.

A very unknown but likable little western....with a good song
20 November 2005 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

There are no credits given for the song or the singer for the ballad with which this movie begins, either at the beginning or end of the film itself or here at IMDb. I assume Paul Dunlop at least wrote it since he is credited with songs for other western films.

If anyone finds out the name of the singer, please post it. He's not bad.

I'm amazed anyone else saw this. I caught it by accident on the Western Channel (Starz) and surprised that a film boasting Neville Brand, plus other famous character actors like Alan Hale, Jr. and Bruce Bennett would be so unknown.
