Joaquin Murrieta Carillo was in California during the 1850s gold rush. There are many accounts, some contradictory, of his actions but he is generally thought of as The Mexican Robin Hood. His life and death was popularized in a dime novel and probably served as the template for Zorro. See more
Pratt suggests that Jimmy got his inspiration of stealing money from a bank to help pay for an old ladies fore closed home, from Robin Hood, but this is an incorrect analogy. People often mistake that Robin Hood stole from the rich to give to the poor, when in fact that is not what Robin Hood did. He stole from from the king to get back the money of the people who were overtaxed by the tyrant; it was not an issued of poor vs. rich, but right vs. wrong. See more
