Return With Us Now To TV Westerns: 'THE CISCO KID'
Was The Cisco Kid a friend of yours like he was mine? One of the earliest TV shows filmed in color, The Cisco Kid [1950-56] starred Duncan Renaldo and Leo Carillo. (It is still rerun today.)
Since Carillo, who died in 1961, was elderly when he portrayed Pancho, I've included his early portrait. Carillo was an original California aristocrat who has a state park named after him.
The correct Castilian pronunciation of his last name is Cay-reel-yo.
