Movie Info

There was a genuine ballad behind this film, based on a real-life character. Cortez, a San Antonio cowpoke, was arrested in 1901 because he resembled the actual criminal. Unable to speak English, Cortez fights off the authorities. His subsequent life as a fugitive forms the core of this independently produced project.
