¡Feliz Cumpleaños, César Romero!

AKA César Julio Romero Jr.

Born February 15, 1907. Died January 1, 1994.

He was the son of a Cuban mother and an Italian father who played many a Latin lover and even -- for six movies -- the Cisco Kid. (?!) He is best known to contemporary pop culture fans as the man who played the original Joker in the 1960s TV series Batman, but he also played Count Dracula on an old Night Gallery episode and Hernán Cortés in the 1947 Tyrone Power movie Captain from Castile.
