Cisco Book

The Bilingual Review Press is pleased to provide the bibliography forThe Cisco Kid: American Hero, Hispanic Roots, by Francis M. Nevins and Gary D. Keller.

Expanding on Francis M Nevins's 1998 book The Films of the Cisco Kid, this new edition adds a Hispanic sensibility to the history of the character in United States film. Despite the Cisco Kid’s initial description as non-Hispanic by writer O. Henry, by the first Cisco sound film (In Old Arizona, 1929), the character was endowed with a Latino persona that has endured. Including film stills, lobby cards, and posters, this lavishly illustrated coffee-table book is sure to delight anyone who remembers or is interested in this popular culture phenomenon.
