There'd already been a "Cisco Kid" B-picture titled The Gay Caballero, so this Monogram "Cisco" entry was released as The Gay Cavalier. No matter: it means the same thing, and the film is the mixture as before. Gilbert Roland stars as Cisco, while Martin Garralaga, usually cast as Pancho, is here seen as a wealthy ranch owner. With his usually roguish aplomb, Cisco saves Garralaga from a gang of thieves, engaging chief villain Tris Coffin in an exciting bit of climactic swordplay. Gay Cavalier represented Gilbert Roland's first "Cisco Kid" endeavor; he would appear in five more before being replaced by Duncan Renaldo in 1947.
