They would both laugh, and Cisco would say "Oh, Pancho! " and then they would ride off into the sunset as the credits rolled.

I probably didn't see all 156 of the episodes, but I saw a lot! DUNCAN RENALDO, whose real name was Renault Renaldo Duncan, had a rather uncertain history.

Renaldo claimed in his defense that he was born in Camden, New Jersey and only later raised in Romania as Basil Couyanos by people whom he sometimes referred to as "mother" and "father", but other times by their Christian names, Demetri and Theodora. He claimed Romanian nationality when he took a job on a French freighter, and entered the United States in 1917, registering as a foreign seaman; in court records, he claimed that this occurred four years later in 1921, but the prosecution produced evidence that he was listed as a coal passer on the S. Puget Sound in 1917, and first entered the United States when this ship landed at Baltimore, Maryland that year.

Failing to support himself as a portrait painter, he tried producing short films.

The producers had Cisco wearing masks, disguised as a ghost and used other gimmicks where they could use doubles.

He had to record his lines--and shoot his close-ups--from his hospital bed, and the producers also used previously shot footage of him.

In January 1933, Renaldo was sentenced to serve two years in federal prison and fined 00 on conviction of falsely claiming American citizenship, falsifying a passport, and perjury, but he eventually was pardoned by President Franklin D. He found minor roles at Republic Studios and other Poverty Row studios until he convinced Republic head Herbert Yates in 1939 to introduce a Latin cowboy into The Three Mesquiteers series.

Renaldo was arrested for illegal immigration in 1934 (he was a sailor on a ship that docked in Maryland in the late 1920s but caught fire at the pier and burned, stranding him in the US).

There was some confusion as to his birthplace--he was orphaned as a child in Europe and didn't know where he was born--and since the authorities didn't know to which country he should be deported, he was imprisoned for a year.

Two Minutes to Play is a 1936 American sports comedy film directed by Robert F. Martin Granville (Brix), the son of a disgraced college football player, enrolls in his father's college and joins the football team after being charmed into it by the flirtatious Pat Meredith (Martel).

He begins dating Meredith who, in turn, is dating several other young men.
