Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0008411: LEO CARRILLO

Nifty vintage 8x10-inch black and white publicity portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen in-person for a busy autograph hound in New York City the 1930s. In good condition, with scattered, mild handling creases in the borders and background at the top, minimally detracting from overall appearance. Typically cast as excitable, malaprop-spewing Spaniards and Italians, great character actor Leo Carrillo is best remembered as Pancho on T.V.'s "The Cisco Kid" (1950-1955), opposite Duncan Renaldo. He appeared in several horror films, portraying Tobias Clump in Horror Island (1941), Signor Ferretti in Phantom of the Opera (1943) and Jerry in the Olsen and Johnson horror-themed comedy Ghost Catchers (1944).
