| Is Pablo really so bad?
Someone is raiding and killing and trying to drive the ranchers out.

Those still around - along with gullible Texas Rangers captain, Forrest Taylor - believe it is the work of wicked Pablo, the well known Mexican bandit. We know better of course: didn't we see those shifty expressions flitting across Tris Coffin's face? (What do you mean, he always looks like that?).

Tex isn't fooled either. Pablo so enjoys Tex's singing that Tex wisely opines that any man who loves music and singing has a heart and can't be responsible for all the crimes he is accused of! Great songs in this one. I loved Rhythm of the Rio Grande and Pablo so enjoyed Mexicali Moon that he felt too mellow to shoot anyone. There is also a strikingly pretty heroine in Suzan Dale who, as far as I can see, only made one film. I wonder why.

Absolute nonsense but I really enjoyed it!
