Leo Carrillo was an actor from 1920s to the 1950s. He is best remembered for his role as Pancho in TV's "The Cisco Kid", and he seemed like a semi-literate Hispanic actor, but that was far from the truth! He was born in California and he came from a distinguished family there, and his father was the first mayor of Santa Monica! He was an educated man, and in his 30s, he started acting on the stage, with much success. After he starred in the play "Mister Antonio", Hollywood decided to make a film version, and they brought him over to play the lead in 1929, and it was his first feature! Some of his other movies include: History is Made at Night, Parachute Jumper, Manhattan Melodrama, Ghost Catchers, and many more! He passed away in 1961 at the age of 80.
