Veteran Spanish Actor Manuel Alexandre Dies

MADRID – Actor Manuel Alexandre, known for his roles in such films as “Bienvenido, Mr. Marshall” and “Calle Mayor” died Tuesday in Madrid, sources close to his family told Efe. He was 92.

Alexandre, who was suffering from cancer, spent his final days in San Camilo Hospital.

Gold medal winner for supporting actor in Spanish films, Alexandre worked in more than 300 movies, on the stage and in television series like “Fortunata y Jacinta” and “Los Ladrones Van a la Oficina” (Thieves Go to the Office).

Born Nov. 11, 1917 in Madrid, Manuel Alexandre Abarca made his stage debut in 1945 and on the big screen in 1953 with “Bienvenido, Mr. Marshall” (Welcome Mr. Marshall) by Luis Garcia Berlanga, who made him a regular in his films in such productions as “Calabuch”, “Placido”, “Todos a la Carcel” (Everyone to Jail) and “Paris-Tombuctu” (Paris-Timbuktu).

Other classic titles from Spanish filmmaking in which Alexandre played were “Calle Mayor” (Main Street) by Juan Antonio Bardem, “Extramuros” (On the Outskirts of Town) by Manuel Picazo, “Madregilda” by Francisco Regueiro, “El Año de las Luces” (Year of Lights) by Fernando Trueba, and “Elsa y Fred,” for which he won a Goya-prize nomination for best actor in 2005.

Winner of the Fine Arts Medal of Merit in 2002, a Goya of Honour in 2003 and the Grand Cross of Alfonso X The Wise in 2009, his last big part was playing Francisco Franco in the series “20-N.” His final movie role was in “Campamento Flipy” (Camp Flipy) by Rafa Parbus. EFE
