LEO CARRILLO.
Describes preparations for portraying Pancho Villa
Typed Letter signed: "Leo Carrillo", 1p, 8½x11. Santa Monica, California, 1952 October 10. On personal letterhead to Lowell E. Redelings, "Hollywood Scene", Hollywood News, Hollywood, California. In full: "This is just a little note of gratitude for your kind and honest review of my picture 'Pancho Villa Returns'. Your comments regarding my efforts are really a shot in the arm. I worked hard on this picture and made a minute study of the practically unknown inner workings of Villa's mind and heart. I got these mostly from his wife, Luz Corral Villa. Incidentally she is now visiting in Los Angeles. I had to laugh at one critic who said that physically I wasn't like Villa but the lady who lived, ate, and slept with him, his wife, said over a Radio Broadcast Interview that I matched all the requisites. She has supplied me with numerous unpublished stories, dramatic, human, whimsical and humorous that are out of this world. I won't make this letter of appreciation long but please let me say that I respect your opinion and I am grateful for the space alloted [sic] me in your column." 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. Carrillo, who entered movies in 1927, was reportedly convincing as the youthful Villa in the 1950 film discussed above, even though he was nearly 70 years old. 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. Lightly creased and soiled. One-fourth-inch tear at left of upper edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
