Overview

Former silent screen serial queen Dorothy Gulliver stars in this very low-budget Western as the owner of a mine terrorized by a gang of ruffians. Looking into several troubling occurrences at the site, including the murder of a mining engineer, Pat (Gulliver) learns that Devil Jackson (George Chesebro) and his henchmen are using the location for their counterfeiting operations. Happily, a couple of undercover agents, Joaquin (Rex Lease) and Pedro (Earl Douglas), are present to save Pat from certain death in the hands of the gang. Fighting Caballero was released by an outfit calling itself Superior Talking Pictures, Inc. -- a distinct misnomer.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
Filmed, it appears, several years prior to its December 1935 release date, Fighting Caballero represents the final gasps of several former silent stars, including the still very pretty Dorothy Gulliver and the rather nondescript Rex Lease. The latter sports a Mexican accent that wouldn't fool anyone -- but seems to do exactly that here -- and is not helped by below-par direction by one of the true hacks of the genre, the redoubtable Elmer Clifton. Although prominently billed in the credits, Franklyn Farnum (yes, another veteran of silent Westerns) appears only briefly as a bartender.
