Plot summary[edit]

Kid and his partner, Gordito, and another outlaw named Harbison are each bequeathed a third interest in a gold mine of a dying prospector and whose only request is that they take care of his baby. In order to make sure that each keeps their promise, he tears the map of the mine in 3 parts.



Frank S. Nugent, of The New York Times, reviewed the film saying, "In sum, The Cisco Kid and the Lady is good old-fashioned horse opera and good entertainment to boot".[1] Time Out London wrote that the film has "a shaggy-dog charm".[2] Paul Mavis of DVD Talk rated it 3.5/5 stars and called it "completely satisfying".[3] Patrick Naugle of DVD Verdict wrote, "The Cisco Kid and the Lady is standard western stuff (everything unfolds as you'd expect, with the requisite happy ending), but for what it is, it's amusing and goes down easy as a shot of tequila."[4]
