For Older Children
The Great Bank Robberies
[Starring] The Cisco Kid
Old General Lawrence still fights the Civil War in his imagination. Bad men pose as his troopers and under this cloak of respectability terrorise the countryside. They accuse Cisco and Pancho of the murder of one of their number and the General condemns them to death. The friends escape, however, and in a thrilling battle turn the tables on the outlaws.

The Page of Chinon
A play for television.
Written and produced by Rex Tucker
(Douglas Blackwell is appearing in "No Time for Sergeants" at Her Majesty's Theatre, London)
On March 6, 1429, Joan of Arc, the village girl, came to the Dauphin's castle at Chinon. She told him that God had called her to crown him King and to drive the English invaders out of France. Six weeks later she rode out from Chinon at the head of three thousand men. During those six weeks she lived in the castle, fretting with impatience while the great ones made up their minds. In this period the play takes place.
