Post by: DJIMBO on August 07, 2006, 04:32:54 AM
Hi all, does anyone know the name of the actor who plays the Union Commandant in Betterville Camp, the one to whom Angel-Eyes says "Just as long as you're the commandant..."

Btw, we all know the Union Captain at the bridge is Aldo Giuffre, i dont mean him.

I'm not sure, but according to imdb.com, in the cast there is a Capt. Harper, played by Antonio Molino Rojo.
He is not always credited, but he was also in FOD, FFDM and OUTIW. See here:

Something I've been meaning to ask about this actor, is his family name Rojo or Molino Rojo?

  That's quite a link, Leonardo, it stretched all the way across the page 3 times.   :o  Sorry though, can't answer your question.

Sorry Tim, about the long link: I realized it myself but unfortunately just after I have posted it. Guess it's because I started with google and then link by link I got to the right page. This by the way is the only photo I could find on the net of Antonio Molino Rojo.
As to the question about his name, in Spain it is quite common to have two surnames. So Antonio is definetely his only first name, while Molino Rojo are both surnames.

Just added a page with more images of him:

Edit: I have him listed under "R" for Rojo, should he be moved the "M"?

If his family names are Molino Rojo, then yes.
