Duncan Renaldo as the Cisco Kid

Source: Freebase

Renault Renaldo Duncan (April 23, 1904 - September 3, 1980), better known as Duncan Renaldo, was an American actor who portrayed The Cisco Kid in films and on the 1950-1956 American TV series, The Cisco Kid. An orphan, Renaldo never knew his biological parents and was raised in several European countries. He said he was not sure himself where he had been born, though his earliest memories were of Spain. He emigrated to America in the 1920s. Failing to support himself as a portrait painter, he tried producing short films. He eventually took up acting and signed with MGM in 1928. In 1934 he was arrested for illegal entry into the United States, but eventually was pardoned by President Franklin Roosevelt and returned to acting.
