Did You Know?

Trivia:
Because Michael Ansara did such a convincing portrayal of Cochise, and because of his somewhat Indian-sounding name, many viewers thought he actually was an Indian. In reality, he was born in Syria and his parents, while American citizens, were from Egypt.See more »

Re: Ricardo Montalban as Cochise, 16 July 2003
Author: chuckju from Los Angeles, CA

I just answered my own question. Montalban played Cochise in The 20th Century Hour TV series (a series of single one-hour TV made versions of 20th Century Fox movies). This still starred John Lupton as Tom Jeffords. They apparently made the series after this, except with Michael Ansara. I found this by checking the last TV entry on IMDB for Ricardo Montalban under TV episodes. I personally never remember seeing The 20th Century Hour.
