Plot

The “Three Amigos” - once famous and now unemployed silent cowboy films stars - are more than glad to receive an invitation from Carmen (Martinez) who begs for them to go to the small Mexican Town of Santo Poco. Believing they are being summoned to perform their act they go eagerly. Great is their surprise when they find out they have been called by this people (that believe them to be real heroes) to help them fight against “El Guapo” and his band of ruffians who want to take the town.

The “Three Amigos” are then forced to change from performers to real heroes in order to save these good people. They have to get the best out of their wits and skills to succeed against a band of real mobsters. Lots of gags and hilarious dancing scenes are part of this classical movie.
