Complete Movie Review:

The Gay Caballero is none other than O'Henry's famous Robin Hood of the west, the Cisco Kid. Cesar Romero is playing the Cisco Kid here and once again he and his faithful companion Gordito are there to help a lady in distress. In this case the lady is Sheila Ryan come here from the United Kingdom with her father C. Montague Shaw to buy the ranch of Janet Beecher which is in great debt.

But Beecher is a proud woman and she ain't giving the ranch up even if it means killing and robbing Shaw and Ryan.

What brings Romero and sidekick Chris-Pin Martin to the situation is hearing rumors that he's dead and later finding a grave to attest to that. It was Edmund MacDonald, Beecher's foreman who 'killed' the Cisco Kid. Naturally Cisco himself is going to stick around to see who would kill him and why.
