In a South American town they begin their life of respectability by purchasing a ranch and depositing their stolen fortune in the local bank, and throwing a big fiesta to entertain the locals, including Colonel Aguilar and his beautiful daughter Rita. 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.

Slightly above average

This is basically "just another" low-budget western from the fifties. Butch Cassidy and the Kid go to Mexico, trying to become legit. Alas, they are forced back into their outlaw ways.

Yeah, well, Redford and Neuman it 'aint. There is very little insight into any of the characters' personalities. It's pretty much based purely on action. However, It is a few notches above most of the shlock westerns from that period, having a solid story line, decent acting, and tight direction / editing.

Odd to see Alan Hale (The skipper from Gilligan's island) as a leading man. He does OK, but was certainly did not have "star" quality and is in fact this films main downfall.

Well, this is a flick that will pass the time, but don't go out of your way to see it.
