Evan Lewis has been posting about The Cisco Kid on his always interesting blog Davy Crockett's Almanack recently, most notably the movies starring Gilbert Roland. Evan has whet my appetite, so here's a sample from the radio show from 1953. The Cisco Kid first came to the airwaves from October 2, 1942, to February 14, 1945, starring Jackson Beck as Cisco and Louis Soren as Pancho. The Cisco Kid returned as a thrice-weekly series in 1946, seguing to a syndicated half-hour series that ran from 1947 to 1956; Jack Mather and Harry lang appeared in the starring roles.
In this episode gunfighter Chain Lightnin' is released from prison and goes gunning for Cisco. Cisco, however, has sprained his wrist and may not be up to the challenge.
"Oh, Pancho!" "Oh, Ceesko!"
