    A dated, early talking Western filmed outdoors. Baxter's Oscar- winning performance speaks to the time in which whites playing cartoonish Latino's is tolerable, his character is the most charismatic because everyone around him is either a stereotype or horrible. Story seems unintentionally funny at times and cheesy overall. More of a showcase for funny accents. I give it a 2/5.

  • Good B&W movie

    I've always been interested in seeing this movie and its claim as the first 'talking Western'. I also wanted to see Warner Baxter in the second ever Best Actor Oscar performance. As I watched this early 'talkie' I was impressed with the few scenic shots and was wondering if the lack thereof would make me discount this film. Oddly, I found Baxter's performance as 'The Cisco Kid' very believable, especially in juxtaposition to Edward Lowe's 'over the top' performance as the Army Sergeant chasing after 'The Cisco Kid'. Dorthy Burgess played such a convincing, narcissistic, 'bimbo' I found myself actually overlooking her stereo type portrayal and enjoying her acting. I expected this film to be completely boring but I found it very interesting; I'm glad I watched it and would recommend it to anyone interested in silent films or early 'talkies'.

    This movie is simply a gem. Aha, I see it was directed by Raoul Walsh, that certainly contributed. The scene that sticks in my mind is where Warner Baxter (as the Cisco Kid) is driving a herd of cattle into a corral singlehandedly, on horseback, just using a cowbell. So smoothly done it's as though he had done it hunders of times before. Just Wonderful. Im off to buy the DVD.

    For years I have always been curious about this movie. I'm happy that TCM gave me a chance to see it. I have never seen Warner Baxter in a role like this before. I suppose one of his most famous roles is the ailing director in 42nd street. Baxter's role as the Cisco Kid is lights years away from that role.It was worth watching just to see his performance that won him the Oscar.
