Storyline

The Cisco Kid tells his pal Gordito that "From now on, Amigo, I am through with women" and then a few minutes later, after rescuing Joan Allen from an attempted stage holdup, tells her "...but you, senorita, you are different!" and therein lies the short summary of all of the films in the 20th Century-Fox Cisco Kid series. The padded plot, so exhibitors could tell the entries apart, finds Towash, Texas saloon owner Hank Gunther plotting with Jesse Allen, Joan's father, to rob the money missed on the aborted stage holdup from the express company safe rather than report empty-handed to the "Boss". Allen robs the express office, but is seen by Moses, an old hermit, who tells the boys in the saloon that he doesn't know the robber's name but recognized him as the man he had seen that day with Joan. The latter has convinced her father to return the money and they will go to Arizona. Cisco, also seen that day with Joan, gets blamed for the robbery as Gunther has killed ol' Mose who is no ...

Pretty good...and familiar.
18 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

This film is very much like many of the other Cesar Romero incarnations of the Cisco Kid. Once again, when the film starts he's in a clinch with a pretty lady, once again she betrays him and once again he swears off women....and once again he soon forgets this oath! What also is familiar is that once again, someone is committing robberies and they are pretending to be the Cisco Kid. After all, he's a bandit and a handy scapegoat! However, when a robbery in town occurs, an old crazy hermit, Moses, sees it...and the bandits kill the guy and frame Cisco!! So, he has to infiltrate the gang, save the pretty woman and save his not exactly perfect reputation.

Despite the familiarity, this is an enjoyable entry in the series. There also a couple familiar bit players, Mantan Moreland and Willie Fung. Oddly, Fung's IMDb and Wikipedia pages list almost nothing about him...yet he appeared in 125 films! Overall, an enjoyable outing. Generally nothing special but handled quite well...and the way the baddies die...now that IS special!
