My Outlaw Brother (1951)
At the turn of the century, Denny O’Moore (Mickey Rooney (I)’), is enroute from his New York City home to Texas, to pay his brother, Patrick (Robert Stack), a surprise visit at the latter’s silver mine across the Mexico border. Denny meets Texas Ranger Joe Waldner (Robert Preston), who suspects that Patrick is involved with the notorious Mexican bandit, El Tigre. Denny and Waldner are captured by El Tiger’s henchmen, but escape. Denny appeals to Carmel Alvarado (Wanda Hendrix), Patrick’s sweetheart, to try and talk Patrick into leaving El Tigre, and falls in love with her himself. The bandits, headed by the mysterious El Tigre, surround Denny, Waldner and Carmen in an old hacienda in Mexico.
