"Renaldo was a postive role model for all Americans"

"One of the first to be filmed in color "The Cisco Kid Collection 2", featuring Duncan Renaldo as Cisco and Leo Carillo as Pancho, both actors been in the film business for decades ~ once again they fill the bill for a new Western Series for both kids and adults alike.
Much like it's predecessor, this second collection has many half-hour episodes, from a selection of twenty, that have never seen the light of day ~ the two legendary pair have been on the screen since the early '30s and have sent a positive message on moral and fair play to every wrangler and buckaroo that sat in front of the Big screen and little screen ~ always for the little guy, once they have uncovered a plot or solved the mystery the action comes on strong ~ can remember all the kids in
the neighborhood saddling up and riding the dusty trails right after watching the weekly program.
The series star Duncan Renaldo was presented with a "Special Lifetime Achievement Award from Nosotros" ~ for providing a positive Hispanic role model for Americans that was certainly well deserved ~ Renaldo always held his head high in every way ~ O. Henry's famous Robin Hood of the Old West, a fictional western character "The Cisco Kid" came to life through a weekly series as they clean up a wild town, trailing cattle rustlers and always for the under-dog ~ take notice that all the episodes were filmed in the great outdoors.
In summary, this classic Western ran from 1950-1956 featuring great action sequences climaxing each story that holds up today as one of our great western heroes ~ once again because of film preservation and this restored DVD, we can escape to the old west and family entertainment ~ was good to see one of my all-time favorite sidekicks Leo Carillo (Pancho), take the english language to another level ~ his famous one liners still ring in my head, and I loved every one of them ~ especially at the end, when both would sing out with "Oh, Pancho" and then "Oh, Cisco", they'll never be another like the two of them...gotta love it!
