Movie Info

Warner Baxter, sporting a black mustache and a musical-comedy Mexican accent, stars as the Cisco Kid, the "Robin Hood of the Old West" created by O. Henry. Edmund Lowe co-stars as Cisco's "friendly enemy" Sgt. Mickey Dunne, the role that was originally to have gone to Raoul Walsh. Both men are madly in love with dusky beauty Tonia Maria (Dorothy Burgess), and in fact Cisco is so "far gone" that he composes a song in the girl's honor (actually, "My Tonia", first heard during the opening credits,

[A] distinctly enjoyable offering.

It's the first outdoor talker and a western, with a climax twist to make the story stand out from the usual hill and dale thesis.

The first major Western in sound...One can occasionally feel the filmmakers showing off the technology, with close-ups of a crying baby or sizzling ham and eggs. [Blu-ray]

Famous for being the first major sound western, this picture made progressive use of exterior sound and photography.

Uneven film with brilliant comedy relief by Edmund Lowe, and lots to interest fans of Raoul Walsh.

Walsh presents the action in his usual clear, well-paced and exciting manner.

If it appears that I'm being too hard on this film, one doesn't have to look very far to see far superior films, both sound and silent, released around the same time.

Audience Reviews for In Old Arizona

Charming performance by Baxter as the suave bandit The Cisco Kid. Lowe and Burgess overact in the way common to stage or silent movie actors making the transition to talkies (though this is Burgess's screen debut). The use of songs is natural as the characters whistle to themselves or sing to pass the time with a few friends. The western scenery and interior decorations make for great period detail. Some amusing moments and surprising seductiveness from Burgess make this an entertaining little picture.

Lost in the annals of history is this early film that doesn't stretch the use of film making. The westerns that followed easily make this one forgettable.
