|Here's adventure! Here's romance! O. Henry's "Famous Robin Hood of the Old West" is back! The Cisco Kid stars Duncan Renaldo as Cisco and Leo Carillo as his faithful sidekick and comic foil, Pancho. One of the first television programs to be filmed in color, this classic Western ran from 1950-1956.|
Set in 1890's New Mexico, Cisco and Pancho fight corruption and seek justice for the victims of bandits, con men and cattle rustlers. With a combination of humor and compassion for their fellow man, Cisco and Pancho have become legendary to television viewers everywhere.
In 1980, Renaldo received a Special Lifetime Achievement Award from Nosotros, which honored him for "providing a positive Hispanic role model for Americans," and called The Cisco Kid "a perennial television favorite."
Episode highlights for The Cisco Kid Collection Four include: Pancho masquerades as a wealthy man to foil a real estate scam artist; a fake newspaper story lures Cisco into a town rife with corruption; and, a ruthless gang heists a shipment of smallpox vaccine and holds it for ransom.
Editor's NoteDuncan Renaldo stars as author O. Henry's righteous outlaw THE CISCO KID in this groundbreaking television series. THE CISCO KID was the first American program to feature a Latino actor in the lead role and was also the first weekly series to be filmed entirely in color. In the late 19th century, the Cisco Kid and his sidekick Pancho roam the West, helping the needy, while battling bandits and villains. THE CISCO KID combines good natured action with comedy (most centered on the bumbling Pancho) and romance (from the dandy Cisco) in the manner of 1950s television. COLLECTION 4 contains 20 episodes of the popular and significant television series.
