I grew up watching the old 'Cisco Kid' series on TV in the 50s, starring Duncan Renaldo and Leo Carrillo as Cisco and Pancho. The show would always end with the classic exchange between the two actors: "Oh, Cisco...", "Oh, Pancho...".

I've always been a fan of the actor Gilbert Roland and when I saw that he was playing the Cisco Kid for the first time in this film, I just had to see it.

This version of the Kid is quite different then the TV series. In the film, he leads a gang of outlaws, in the TV series, its just him and Pancho. I suspect that this change was made for mostly budgetary reasons.

In any case, I enjoyed the film and now know why the Cisco Kid was known as the 'Robin Hood of the West'.

The Gay Cavalier is a good film. It has a good plot line, reasonable acting and really good scenery. It is especially good that the film portrays Mexicans in a favorable light and encourages certain customs to be highlighted.
