Frank Fay plays a Mexican gentleman in South Texas who takes up the task of searching for cattle rustlers, but spends more time romancing various young ladies. The plot is lightweight and played for laughs.

There are some musical numbers and and a bit of dancing.

Supposedly the first two color Technicolor western. The restored print has nice colors, which shows off the costumes well.
