Duncan Renaldo ACTOR


Duncan Renaldo was born on April 20th, 1904 in Oancea, Romania with the birth name Renault Renaldo Duncan.   He as an orphan and some records show his birth place as Spain and that is where he states his early childhood memories are from.  He was raised in a number of European cities and relocated to the United States in the early 1920's.
His first introduction into the film industry was when he was able to find his way into working as a producer on short features which soon lead to working as an actor with MGM.  He was mostly cast as the "Latin Lover" character when studio's took advantage of his Hispanic good looks. 

When it was found out he was living in the United States illegally he was almost deported, however, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt allowed him to stay.  He continued working in the film industry for studios such as Republic and Monogram.
Some of his film work was as one of the Three Mesquiteers in the film series as well as on such features as, "The Painted Stallion" (1937), "Jungle Menace" (1937), "Zorro Rides Again" (1937), "King of the Mounties" (1942), "Secret Service in Darkest Africa" (1943), "The Tiger Woman" (1944) and then in 1945 he was cast in the Cisco Kid film series along with Leo Carrillo.
In the early 1950's he continued playing the same character from the Cisco Kid but on television.  Soon after the series came to an end he chose to retire from the industry and many just remember him as "The Cisco Kid".     

Renaldo retired soon after the series' demise and died years later at Goleta Valley Community Hospital in California of lung cancer in 1980.  On September 3rd, 1980 he passed away in Goleta, California after suffering from lung cancer.    
Renaldo married twice throughout his lifetime, first to a lady by the name of Suzette but they divorced in 1940.  He then married his second wife, Audrey from 1948 through his death and never had any children.
