Set in Mexico 1916, it tells of the dubious arms deal between Pancho Villa & McDermott, a gun battle and double-crossing between Pancho Villa and his old enemy General Goyo. When the Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa is double-crossed in an arms deal planned by his comrade Scotty. Villa and Scotty plot a raid on a U.S. cavalry fort in retaliation.


Lone Ferk told me she remembers her scene as a nurse in a hospital nursing Colonel Wilcox. played by Chuck Connors, who is completely covered in a body cast with only his mouth exposed. She tells Wilcox that General Pershing, played by Walter Coy, is coming to see him. She said that Telly Savalas didn’t want her for the part but her friend the director Gene Martin insisted she play the nurse. She said she had fun with it anyway.

  1. German titles: "3 Halleluja auf 4 heiße Colts" was the 25 minutes-Super8-title, only; otherwise it ran as "Viva Pancho Villa"
