Storyline

Near Border Flats, Don Cyote, and his friend Sancho, are interrupted on their way to the fiesta by a fight. A quick intervention on their part prompts ranch owner Maggie Riley to hire them. Coyote and Sancho meet her surly, younger brother Ted who is wanting Maggie to sell their cattle herd to pay off a bank loan before they lose the ranch. But when they try to drive a herd to market, a gang led by Big Foot Ferguson drives off their cowhands. Ted finds a surveying plumb marked "United Pacific R.R." in a canyon by their ranch. He shows Sheriff Dave Sherman and they learn that the railroad intends to buy a section of Maggie's land, thereby increasing its value. The next day, Coyote, Ted, the sheriff and three deputies drive Maggie's cattle toward Border Flats, and are waylaid by the Fenton gang. But where is Sancho who has disappeared on a mysterious mission? Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Chito Becomes a Coyote
12 April 2001 | by artzauSee all my reviews

Chito Gonzalez Bustamonte Rafferty ("The Irish in me is for fight; the Mexican for love!")was Richard Martin's bread and butter role in a large number of "B" films with Tim Holt. This was a departure based on the adventures of the Cisco Kid, in part, the travels of El Hidalgo Don Quixote de la Mancha, in part and the popular films of Lash LaRue, in part. Martin is great, for a B actor and the story's not too corny. There's no video and you'll likely catch this only on the late show...and it won't be a classic. But, as a 10 year old kid, I loved it. Now, whether you will or not is a moot point but if you're wondering whether you'll watch it or not, I'd say CHECK IT OUT!
