Actor. Real name Ysabel Ponciana Chris-Pin Martin Paiz. Born in Tucson, Arizona of Mexican parents, he made his film debut in 1929. Wall-eyed and chubby, with a distinctive high-pitched voice, Martin provided comic relief in dozens of B westerns, notably as Cesar Romero's sidekick Pancho in the "Cisco Kid" films of the 1930s. He is also memorable as Chris in "Stagecoach" (1939) and as Gordito in "The Mark of Zorro" (1940). His other credits include "Billy the Kid" (1930), "The Ox-Bow Incident" (1943), "The Fugitive" (1947), and "Mexican Hayride" (1948). Martin died of a heart attack at 59, while addressing a Moose Lodge meeting in Montebello, California. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
