The career of director, screenwriter, and actor Fernando Delgado spanned one of 20th century Spain's most tumultuous periods. The grandson of an actress and the son of a writer, Delgado entered the entertainment industry as a stage actor after studying law. Delgado made his screen debut in 1916, in Benito Perojo's Muecos/Puppets. Two years later, Delgado was assistant director to Jacinto Benavente in Los Intereses Creados/Vested Interest and La Madonna de las Rosas/Madonna of the Roses. Delgado abandoned films in favor of acting exclusively on-stage from 1919 to 1924 when he returned to direct Las Granujas/The Rogues. Delgado's most successful silent films were Currito de la Cruz (1925) -- his 1936 remake of which was the most expensive Spanish film up until that time -- and Viva Madrid que Es Mi Pueblo!/Hooray for Madrid, My Village! (1928). In 1934, Delgado took over the management of Ballesteros Studios. While filming El Genio Alegre/The Light-Hearted Girl, the Spanish Civil War erupted and Delgado could not complete it until 1939. By that time, lead actress Rosita Daz had been exiled so Delgado had to use a stand-in. In the midst of the war, Delgado supported the Nationalists by making propaganda documentaries; he had to send the original negatives to Lisbon, Portugal, for post-production work. Delgado is the father of director/actor Luis Mara Delgado. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
