A blot on his name, Cisco will not permit.
17 June 2014 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Cesar Romero stars in this Cisco Kid western as Lucky Cisco Kid and I'm not sure how lucky he was in this film as two women fell for him and he wound up almost as poor as when the film began. Still Romero looked like he was having a lot of fun.

Cisco and companion Gordito played by Cris-Pin Martin as the film opens rob a stagecoach and take the coach as well as the strong box. But Cisco's main enemy, Sergeant Dunn of the US Cavalry is hot on his trail. Romero and Martin ditch the stagecoach and strong box intact and escape, but broke.

Curiously enough there's someone else operating in the area pretending to be the Cisco Kid. A blot on his name Romero will not permit. So they hang around doing a little sleuthing. At the same time they help pretty widow Evelyn Venable hold on to her ranch.

That's the first of two women who have a yen for Romero. Saloon entertainer Mary Beth Hughes thinks Romero quite the dashing caballero. She's also the main squeeze of Sergeant Dunn played here by Dana Andrews making his screen debut. Outlaw Joe Sawyer has a yen for Hughes also, but Romero cuts him down to size in the best scene in the film.

Lucky Cisco Kid which relies a whole lot on Cesar Romero's considerable charm holds up very well for today's audience.
