American police.


We're working with

the local authorities...

to keep undesirable

characters out of Mexico.

We're after a confidence man

named Joe Bascom.

I should be glad to assist you. Thanks.

Keep your eyes open

for a pudgy guy...

who looks as if he were

apologizing for something.

Dark complexion,

5'5" and fat.

That description

fits many men.

How would I know him? That's our

trouble. We don't know him either.

How do you know he's here?

We traced him from El Paso.

He won a dance

marathon contest.

Used the prize money

to get here.

He danced the samba for 68 hours

straight... still goofy from it too.


don't whistle the samba.

Thank you.

Please! I asked you not to whistle

that tune. Don't do it anymore!

Bullfight. Come on.

Hey, look!

That must be Bascom!

So that's Montana! She's

beautiful. Clever too.

I took that kid from

a small-time rodeo...

and built her up

to this.


Oh, no. No!

It couldn't be.

What couldn't be, senor? Nothing. Nothing.

I thought I saw something

I hope I didn't see.

Excuse me

just a minute.

I can't find him,


He's got to be around here.

Come on. Let's go here.

Dale a tu hermano. Dame

el tajo grande a m. Huh?

Estoy hablando

a mi hijo.

No ms.

Dame el ajo.


Mmm. Muy bueno esto.

Esto est bueno.

Est bueno, verdad? No le

gusta a usted? Ah... ooo!

No sabe usted

lo que es bueno, hombre.

No sabe usted lo que es

bueno. Oh, no. Bueno, bueno.

Es lo mejor que hay

para el estmago.

Um... um...

iVa.! Qu tiene?

Est bueno esto, hombre.

Hablo... Hablo es...

I blow outta here.

I'll see you later.

I'm... gonna go now. Est bien. Adis.

Thank you.

Mama. Mama!

I'm sick, Mama.

You looked up there? I

looked all over that section.

Excuse me.

All right.


Excuse me.

What are you doing here in

Mexico? I'm lookin' for you!

And I'm gonna

stick around until...

you give back the money you stole

from my friends in Iowa. I stole?

You're the one the cops are

after. But you've got the money.

Shh. Do the cops know you're

here? The two guys chasing me.

I'm gonna tell 'em the truth

and then they're gonna get you.

Look, Joe, we'll talk

about the money later.

The most important thing,

don't get yourself arrested.

Go find an empty seat

and hide under it.

I'll see you after a

while. I guess I told him.


something's come up.

I've gotta have the dough right

away. Lambert, let's not be hasty.

Our agreement is, when Montana

chooses me to be the Amigo Americano,

I return the money for the silver

mine. If Gus is the Amigo Americano,

he can stick somebody

else with the mine.

It will sell like hotcakes!

Maybe five or six times!

Beat it before people think we're

framing it for me to be the Amigo.

iEl toro.! iEl toro.!

iEl toro.!

What are you doing here? You

told me to find an empty seat.

Sit down, sit down,

sit down.

What are you trying to do?

Ruin me? Me... ruin you? Hmph!

Who was it that told me

I had oil in my backyard?

Who was it that made me sell

that phony stock to my friends?

That ran away with the money?

That made Mary mad at me?

If you're getting tired of the "whos"

I got a "what" for you... on second base.

There's a guy gonna give me

the dough after the bullfight.

Sit still.


: Ol.!

: Ol.!

: Ol.!

Sit down! Who's the

Swede they're yellin' for?

What Swede?


Play dead, will ya? "Play dead, will ya?"

: Ol.!

: Ol.!

: Ol.!

: Ol.!: Ol.!

Didn't I tell you to sit down?

I wanna see what Ole's doin'.

They're cheering Montana. That's

the way the Mexicans say "hurrah. "
