How about Zorro (television and movies), Cisco Kid (television and movies),
Pepito on the Real McCoys (television), Lupe Velez's Mexican spitfire films?
And then there's the Disney movie The Three Caballeros.

Subject: [Videolib] Hispanic on tv and early film series

VCU is looking for stereotypes of Hispanics (Latinos, Chicanos) in
television or film (not contemporary). We already have Zorro, Speedy
Gonzales, and Chico and the Man (where can we get this last one?). We
also have the /Carmen Moranda Bananas/ are My Business documentary and
the Bronze Screen doc.

We reviewed Gary's great list of Hispanic related docs from the Univ.
Berkely site and Viewing Race site.

Suggestions? Ideas?
