His original pen drawing of a cowboy and his horse in a Western desert, signed by Carrillo with instructions, "Put a saddle on this Bronco." (17x11)
Original Art signed: "Put a saddle/on this Bronco/Good luck/Leo Carrillo", 17x11. He has drawn a bow-legged cowboy, a horse, cacti and a rabbit. Also inscribed and signed on verso: "To LES and associates - /'A Swell Outfit'/Best Wishes/from/Lou Tepper/1947". Tepper has drawn a cigarette-smoker in sombrero in a desert scene. After portraying Pancho, the Cisco Kid's sidekick in four films (1948-1949), Carrillo (1880-1961) repeated the role when he and Duncan Reynaldo (as Cisco) starred in television's The Cisco Kid in 156 half-hour episodes from 1950-1956. Leo Carrillo State Park and Leo Carrillo Beach, both in California, were named after the actor, who also served on the State Park and Recreation Commission. He was related by blood and marriage to a long line of distinguished original Californians. If Carrillo signed in the same year as Tepper, this drawing predates his association with the Cisco Kid, but Carrillo had been featured prominently in films, mostly but not all Westerns, since 1929, including The Gay Desperado (1936). No information is available on Lou Teppler, who is obviously not the college football coach of that name (born in 1945). The drawings were dedicated to the owner of the Hollywood Saddlery shop, hence Carrillo's instructions to saddle the bronco. (Before going into films, Carrillo had worked as an editorial cartoonist.) Lightly toned at edges. Two binding holes at left margin. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
