Complete Movie Review:

An average "Cisco Kid" Western-adventure, South of Monterey features ace villain Harry Woods as Bennett, a nasty tax collector foreclosing on the poor to benefit himself. Young rancher Carlos Mandreno (George J. Lewis) refuses to give in and is supported by Maria Morales (Marjorie Riordan), the sister of the chief of police, who promises her brother, Arturo (Martin Garralaga), that she will marry Bennett if he will leave Carlos alone. Carlos' cattle, meanwhile, is rustled by a mystery villain known only as "The Silver Bandit" and Arturo arrests the Cisco Kid (Gilbert Roland). The latter, however, escapes with the aid of a fiery saloon singer (Iris Flores) and manages not only to hunt down the evil Bennett, but also unmask the real "Silver Bandit." Iris Flores sings "Tacos de Amor" and "Anoche Hable con la Luna," both by Gladys Flores and Monogram house composer Edward Kay. South of Monterey was the second of six "Cisco Kid" Westerns Gilbert Roland would do for the little Poverty Row studio. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
