The character of the Cisco Kid was originally created in this short story by O. Henry, but he went through a huge transformation before he became the character widely known today. 

The Cisco Kid is not a beloved character in his first appearance in today’s story, first published in 1907. Nope, he’s a vicious killer. However, by the time of his third feature film, The Old Arizona in 1927, Cisco was revamped as a witty Mexican hero, winning the Oscar for Best Actor for Warner Brothers – the second ever given!

Nearly thirty films were produced with the character, along with 156 television episodes produced between 1950 and 1956. 

But in today’s story by O. Henry, Cisco is a duplicitous scoundrel. The kind that can’t be killed.

And now, The Caballero’s Way, by O. Henry.
