Warner two-reeler about a dimwitted salesman who is arrested in Mexico on suspicion of helping a bandit escape from prison. The police give him a chance to earn his freedom by letting him go (?!?!) so that he can capture the bandit. Yes, I too wondered why the guy just didn't leave on his own will since they didn't have anyone watching him and they just let him walk out the front door. There was nothing keeping him from escaping himself but I guess if they had then this short would have came to an end. We get some beautiful scenery captured in Technicolor and this here is pretty much the only reason to check this short out. Some of the desert locations look extremely good and thankfully the print still contains most of its color. The actual story is pretty bland and boring and El Brendel's type of humor just didn't work for me. There's some singing and dancing as well but again, it just comes off rather blah.
