Armando Silvestre

  1. Guy Williams,  Zorro, TV, 1957-1961.      Because  it was for Walt Disney, who had just made a big star out of Fess Parker as Davy Crockett, the first casting call in March 1957, was answered by 130 Zorro wannabes! Including many of Hispanic parentage.  Such as Silvestre, who made 206 films, mainly Mexican, in 62 years. Plus Two Mules For Sister Sara in 1969, when Williams’ Zorro stuntman, Buddy Van Horn, was  doubling his new pal Clint Eastwood.
