Complete Movie Review:

In 1850 The Cisco Kid makes another annual pilgrimage to the California grave of his father, a former bandit. To atone for his father's crimes, Cisco has spent his life stealing from the rich to give to the poor. At a nearby ranch, Don Felipe is preparing for the marriage of his daughter Angela to a wealthy American businessman, Lawton. Although Angela is in love with Juan, she agrees to marry Lawton in the hope that he will pay Don Felipe's debts and save the ranch. On the road to the ranch, a stagecoach carrying money given by the poor to build a new church is held up by bandits who claim to be the Cisco Kid's gang. Later, Cisco and his men find the injured driver and learn of the accusations against them. Before he dies, the driver also tells them that another injured man was taken to Don Felipe's ranch. When Lawton, the actual robber, arrives at the ranch, he spreads the rumor that Cisco was responsible for the theft. Pepita, Angela's sister, does not like Lawton and encourages Juan to fight for Angela. Later Cisco appears at the hacienda and encounters Pepita. Attracted to the dashing bandit, Pepita listens sympathetically when he tells her that Cisco's men would never steal money from the poor. Finding Lawton alone, Cisco tries to force him to confess, but they are seen by one of Lawton's men, who gives chase. Cisco escapes and hides in Pepita's room. Meanwhile, outside, an eavesdropping Juan learns where the stolen money is hidden. Juan follows Cisco to his camp and begs to join his fight against Lawton. Juan, Cisco, and Cisco's sidekick, Baby, sneak into the outlaw's hideout. Although one bandit escapes, the trio overcomes the others, and later Cisco returns the stolen money to the church. Alerted by the escaped bandit, Lawton tells Don Felipe that the money he was bringing for the ranch was stolen in the stagecoach robbery. Don Felipe then agrees to sign over the ranch without the money. When Cisco learns of the change in plans, he hurries to the hacienda with Juan. Cisco stops the wedding and engages Lawton in a sword fight. As Pepita watches breathlessly, Cisco overcomes Lawton. Now that he has made it possible for Angela to marry Juan, Cisco kisses Pepita and regretfully leaves the ranch for good.
