| Outlaw and heir
Cesar Romero does double duty in Romance On The Rio Grande as he plays both the Cisco Kid and the heir to a rich estancia, one of the finest in all Arizona. Of course that's nowhere near the Rio Grande, but apparently even a major studio like 20th Century Fox gave westerns titles that had nothing to do with the story.

The Cisco Kid interrupts a holdup and discovers his lookalike, the heir to a large estancia newly arrived from Spain. The heir is wounded so Cisco goes to the estate to meet his grandfather Pedro DeCordoba and his cousin Ricardo Cortez who wants to gain control by any means necessary. He has a mistress in Patricia Morison equally ambitious. Ironically it's her ambitions that eventually bring about their downfall.

Romero acquits himself well in both roles and his Sancho Panza, Chris-Pin Martin as always gives us a few good laughs.
