After portraying Pancho, the Cisco Kid's sidekick in four films (1948-1949), LEO 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. Carrillo, who appeared in his first film in 1927 (a silent), had his first starring role in Mr. Antonio (1929). JANE WITHERS (1926-2021) was starring at age four on her own radio program in Atlanta, doing imitations of celebrities. She began her film career with bit parts, eventually (at age eight) winning the plum role of the obnoxious brat who bedevils sweet little Shirley Temple in Bright Eyes. This role won Jane a contract at Fox Studios, and for the next seven years she starred in a series of comedies and musicals. Her later films included Giant (1956) and Captain Newman, M.D., and Withers also voiced a number of animated TV characters and guest starred on several TV series. To TV viewers of the 1960s and 1970s, Withers will be forever associated with her long-running (and extremely lucrative) stint as Josephine the Plumber in a popular series of commercials for Comet cleanser. Soiled. Lightly creased. Binder holes at left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
