Cisco Kid – Necktie Party For Pancho. 520731 According to J David Golden:
The Cisco Kid. Program #4. Mutual-Don Lee net origination, Ziv syndication. “The Town Of Broken Cinch”. Commercials added locally. Cisco and Pancho are jailed and accused of bank robbery in the town of Broken Cinch, and Pancho nearly gets hanged. The story title may be “Necktie Party For Pancho.” Jack Mather, Harry Lang. 1/2 hour. Audio condition: Very good to excellent. Otherwise complete.
In a town in the heart of cattle country that has a reputation of a wealthy town, it tends to draw those who want to rob the banks. A sheriff and deputy talk about the characters that are pictured on the wanted posters.
Word comes in that a robbery is planned, and a posse of the best shots in town is rounded up to prevent the deed from going down. After some serious gunplay, four are shot down while two of the bandits get away.
For some reason, the sheriff mistakenly believes the Cisco Kid to be involved. Things go bad when Cisco and Pancho are tossed into jail. It gets worse when the real bandit instigates a lynch mob to put a quick end to our heros. In desperation, Cisco manages to move a loose bar in the window, but only he can escape, leaving Pancho behind.
Will the sheriff be able to hold off the mob? What does Cisco have in mind? A rescue, or maybe to catch the real bandits? Can he manage both? Cisco needs to act fast, or it could be a neck tie party for his buddy Pancho.
Cisco gains an unexpected ally when the sheriff recognizes a face on one of the wanted posters, and knows he had the wrong man. But will the help come too late?
