About the film:
In 1916, the notorious bandit El Guapo and his gang of thugs are collecting protection money from a small Mexican village. The daughter of the village leader searches for someone who can come to the rescue of her townspeople. While visiting a small village church, she remains to watch a silent film featuring "The Three Amigos" and, believing them to be real heroes, sends a telegram to Hollywood asking them to come and stop El Guapo.
June spotlights five inventive films featuring outcasts who find redemption in coming to the aid of others. The films are being shown as a part of One Book, One San Diego, alongside the current featured book, "Into the Beautiful North" by Luis Alberto Urrea.
