In the 1953 season star Duncan Renaldo was injured in a rock fall and hospitalized, resulting in his missing nine episodes. To cover for Renaldo's absence on the show, the Cisco Kid was shown wearing masks, disguised as a ghost and in other situations where a double could be used for him and footage of him that had been previously shot but not used was also used. He recorded his lines from his hospital bed. See more »
Here's "O. Henry's famous Robin Hood of the Old West!" Duncan Renaldo, The Cisco Kid of TV was a much more stand-up, stalwart hero than the short story character. Righting wrongs and doing good with his pal, Pancho Miguel Fernando Gonzalez de Conejo(Leo Carillo), Cisco was a model of right for a generation of wee cowpokes. Great low-budget nostalgic, formulaic kiddie western fun! And it's all in color, indicative of the foresight of the production company when TV was in it's infancy and a color set couldn't be had as yet!
MPI Video has compiled four DVD collections of 20 episodes each. That's just over half of the 156 episodes! Where are the rest, I wanna know?!? The color and quality are superb given the age of these shows, with great menus and all the stirring theme music and narration adding to the action and comic fun. Highly recommended!
