DUNCAN RENALDO
One year before his death, he writes about his personal tastes
Autograph Letter signed: "Duncan Renaldo", 1p, 8½x11. Santa Barbara, California, 1979 October 10. On personal letterhead to "Dear Mr. Walton". In full: "Thank you for your kindly letter 8-17-79. I just received it. You asked me to write to you my likes and dislikes. Well, here they are: I love beautiful art, paintings and sculptures. I also love animals, particularly horses. Most important, I do like children. They have been my favorite people, and I had to do a lot with them through the years. In my trip to England in 1959, they were wonderful fans. Now. Here are my dislikes. I abhor violence of any kind. I also abhor bigotry. There is only a short life and certainly we can lead it with dignity and kindness. Kindest personal regard and best wishes with your thesis. Cordially yours". Duncan Renaldo (1904-1980), who signed with MGM in 1928, played mostly Latin lovers in late silents and early "talkie" films. In 1932, he spent almost a year in prison on illegal entry charges filed by immigration authorities; he was later pardoned by President Roosevelt. In the 1940s, Renaldo was selected to be one of The Three Mesquiteers, the heroes of a series of popular Westerns. These Westerns and a 1945 feature film, The Cisco Kid Returns, led to the television role for which he is best remembered: The Cisco Kid. Televised from 1950-1955, The Cisco Kid was one of the most durable of television's early westerns and was one of the first series to be filmed in color. Renaldo's film credits include The Bridge of San Luis Rey (1929), South of the Border and The Lone Ranger Rides Again (both 1939), Down Mexico Way (1941), For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943), The Fighting Seabees (1944), Two Years Before the Mast (1946), The Gay Amigo (1949) and Jungle Gold (1966, his last film). Slightly foxed. Minor surface scratches in upper left. Otherwise, fine condition.
