Zorro of the Southern Hemisphere
14 September 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Hi Gaucho tells the story of a pair of feuding Argentine families back when Argentina was still part of the Spanish Empire. The Zorro of our piece is unmasked, but he's as dashing as Tyrone Power and sings like Nelson Eddy.

John Carroll is our hero and he wants to win the love of Steffi Duna. But she's betrothed to a man in his 70s and it's all part of a scheme to bilk her family's fortune. Carroll won't let that happen.

Some forgettable songs and some cheesy accents highlight Hi Gaucho. At least the very British Montague Love doesn't try for one of those accents.

This RKO film is all right, maybe a dubbed Tyrone Power could have put it over better. Dubbed because Ty couldn't sing a lick.
