"If I was going to be broke I decided I might as well be with actors as anyone else. They were cheerful idiots and seemed to take it better." - Peter Finch

Re: Ricardo Cortez Q & A with Dan Van Neste on 8-26 & 8-27

I actually have two things in mind. For a very long time now, people have been urging me to put together a collection of my articles. For years, I did in-depth pieces for variety of publications, most especially Classic Images and Films of the Golden Age magazines. Many of my articles included orig...

Re: Ricardo Cortez Q & A with Dan Van Neste on 8-26 & 8-27

In your view, which of the studios where Cortez worked do you think gave him the best roles? Was his desire to be a compliant employee, accepting most scripts, helpful to his career? You mentioned that Ricardo was a very astute businessman and he appeared to be friendly with several moguls. Was he e...

Not only is he very tough, he is also playful, stylish, not above making a (suppose...

Re: Ricardo Cortez Q & A with Dan Van Neste on 8-26 & 8-27

Anyone who wonders about purchasing this book*--I would recommend it as a wonderfully detailed account of Ricardo Cortez's life in the first half, but also for the second part of the book, which details each of the actor's f...
