This movie depicts Cisco as a road bandit is closer to the original Cisco character created by O. Henry in his 1907 short story "The Caballero's Way". Cisco and Pancho abduct Ellen Roth (Kenyon) when they hold up a stage coach. Once she tells her sad story about being a nurse being framed for murder of her charge, by the deceased's nephew Will Hastings (Willis), they agree to help clear her name. As part of trapping Hastings, they demand a $10,000 ransom to release Roth. The ransom is immediately paid, and Roth is turned over to the sheriff. Running a fake newspaper story claiming the release of Roth by the sheriff, Cisco offers to kill Roth for Hastings. Roth is eventually cleared of the murder.

In this movie Cisco's real name is Juan Carlos Francisco Antonio.


Complete Movie Review:

The Cisco Kid and Pancho hold up a stagecoach and kidnap Ellen Roth. They take the girl, who is wanted on a murder charge, to the mission where Padre Angelo will look after her. She tells Cisco of a mysterious Doctor Willis who called on an aged woman she had been nursing and gave her an overdose of sleeping pills. Convinced that Ellen is innocent, Cisco sets out to prove it. He goes to Bill Hastings where he makes a deal to turn Ellen in if Cisco gets part of the money Hastings will inherit when she is convicted. With Ellen safely in jail, Cisco and Pancho force the local newspaper to run a story saying that Doc Willis has been apprehended. Hastings makes another deal with Cisco to kill Ellen before she testifies against Doc.
