Bandits of Corsica was also released as The Return of the Corsican Brothers. Bearing only the faintest resemblance to the Alexandre Dumas original, the film stars Richard Greene in the dual role of good brother Mario and his evil twin Lucien. Mario leads his fellow Corsicans in a revolt against the despotic Jonatto (Raymond Burr). Meanwhile, Lucien beats his brother's time at home by making love to his brother's wife (Paula Raymond). He also intends to see Mario dead, even though he feels his brother's pain--literally--at every juncture. Way down near the bottom of the cast list was Clayton Moore, who was between episodes of TV's The Lone Ranger.
