Adventures of Don Coyote is the third of five "streamliners", a group of under-an-hour features made by Mary Pickford and Buddy Rogers' Comet Productions. Richard Martin, best known for his semicomic portrayal of Irish-Mexican adventurer Chito Rafferty in RKO's Tim Holt westerns, plays the title character. Accompanied by his singing sidekick Sancho Val Carlo, Don Coyote defends a Mexican ranch against an incursion of Yankee villains. Frances Rafferty, who later played Spring Byington's daughter on TV's December Bride, plays the ranch-owner heroine. Attractively photographed in two-tone Cinecolor, Adventures of Don Coyote is one of the better Comet efforts.
