"This set contains all the Cisco Kid films starring Gilbert Roland. Picture (and sound) quality is good, and the adventures - though slow-paced compared with modern story-telling - are good fun.
This Cisco Kid, unlike the Cisco Kid of the TV series, leads a band of outlaws - seeking out corrupt officials, stealing their ill-gotten gains and re-distributing them back to the poor. At this level, the storylines are all very similar.
Cisco is, of course, irresistable to women. They instantly tell him all their husband's/brother's guilty secrets - thus enabling him to rob them blind. And he hands out necklaces (from what must be a vast stockpile) to those he kisses.
He's got a thing about sticking lighted cigarettes behind his ear while he gets on with something else. Perhaps it looked impressive to audiences of 60 years ago. Today it just looks stupid.
And there's lots of singing - girls singing in bars, beggars singing in the streets, the outlaw band singing around the campfire.
Each film lasts just over the hour. Sit down - relax - let the stories take their own time to unroll, and you'll enjoy these films."

"After viewing the Cisco Kid collection it was just like I remember Gilbert Roland. The clarity is good and the audio is very clear.
I would recommend this collection to anyone who likes a good western."
