The Kid from Kansas
The Kid from Kansas is a 1941 American drama set on a fictional island banana plantation owned by Juan Garcia Pancho (Leo Carrillo). Foreman Andy (Andy Devine) befriends newcomer Kansas (Dick Foran), but Pancho is leery of the stranger. Sabotage and seemingly bad luck befall Pancho and the other island plantation owners, coincidentally at the same time Kansas arrives on the scene. Fruit dealer Lee Walker (James Seay) announces a drop in prices. Before it can be taken to market, Pancho's entire crop is burned by an arsonist, and a plantation worker dies in the fire. The railroad tracks are destroyed and the workers call for a strike. Someone deliberately introduces an imported strain of banana fungus on all the plantations. Pancho is certain Kansas is involved. As things go from bad to worse, it is revealed that the chain of events were engineered by Walker, and that Kansas is a special undercover agent sent to investigate.
