Looking considerably older than he was, Peruvian stage actor Carlos de Valdez played an "old man" in his first Hollywood film, the highly acclaimed Viva Villa!. Although portraying a Hindu in Laurel and Hardy's Bonnie Scotland (1935), a Turkish ambassador in Conquest (1937), and various villains with German-sounding names in Lancer Spy (1937), Suez (1938), and British Intelligence (1940), de Valdez mainly played what he looked like: a steely-eyed South American or Spanish aristocrat. His best role was perhaps that of Warner Baxter's brother in Robin Hood of El Dorado (1936), the story of California bandit Joaquin Murietta.
