Pedro Armendariz

  1. John Loder, Dishonored Lady, 1946.    nThe US censors tores the script to shreds and objected to a free-spirited Hedy Lamarr having two affairs going on. Armendariz was booked for Mexico and Loder for New York.   The Mexican lover was axed and merged into the make-up of Loder’s Courtland.
  2. Zachary Scott, Flamingo Road, 1948.       Two years earlier, the Mexican star (128 screen roles in 27 years) had tested for the deputy sheriff interested in exotic dancer Lane Bellamy – set for Anne Sheridan, but played by Joan Crawford. A little too old in tooth and hoof.
