Cesar Romero Quotes:

Hernando Cortez: Gentlemen, this time last year we were fighting mosquitos in swamps, accepting paltry gifts, and half-starving. But now we stand knocking at the very door of the great Emporer Moctezuma. We shall meet with His Majesty face-to-face - have done with ambassadors and specks of gold. This, gentlemen, is just the beginning!


John Frost: Now, Mr. Jonskill, if you take back your scenery I can't open. If I can't open, no one will be paid. Now your only chance, all of you, is let me open.
Jonskill: It's not the money, Mr. Frost, it's the principle!
Creditor: Aye, the principle!
John Frost: [puzzled] You... you don't want the money?


Cisco Kid: Amigo, if the young lady refuses to say, "I do," shoot the gentleman in the leg.
Gordito: Oh, si.
Cisco Kid: And if the gentleman refuses to say, "I do," shoot him in the other leg. It only comes twice in the ceremony, no?

Cesar Romero Facts
His maternal grandparents were exiled Cubans Carmen and her invalid husband, Manuel Mantilla. Their daughter, María Mantilla--Romero's mother--is generally believed to have been the daughter of Cuban poet and revolutionary hero José Martí, who also wrote "Guantánamera" ("Yo soy un hombre sincero . . . ").

TV writer Mark Evanier remarked that Romero was usually easily available to cast for TV show guest appearances. Apparently, Evanier knew at least one crew member on a TV show who prepared roles with Romero in mind as a default choice in the likely event that a preferred guest star would pull out of a guest appearance.

He believed that to live well you must dress well. And never in the same outfit. His closets held 30 tuxedos, 200 sports jackets, and 500 suits.
