Don Miguel is the only voice of reason in the Rojo household.  The poor old guy, it seems like every waking hour is spent restraining the violent passions of his brothers.  You can see the stress carved into his granite features.

It's a pity that a sage like Don Miguel had to be surrounded by hotheads like Ramon and Esteban.  My guess is that the three brothers inherited the Rojo family business from their father, and the ownership was then split into three equal shares - with Esteban on one side, Ramon on the other, and Don Miguel in the middle.  Bad management setup.  

In the Last Will and Testament of Padre Rojo, Don Miguel should have been appointed CEO of Rojo Tequila & Guns, LLC.  It could have forged ahead as a thriving enterprise well into the 21st Century.  Instead , it ended up as a pile of rotting corpses on a dusty street.  Oswald Spengler feared western civilazaton rushing into just this sort of destructive capitalism.

don miguel rojo, RIP  Cry  
he's in a better place now........that is, if you call 8 feet of dirt a better place.  and for what ? so ramone could show off his rifle ? estaban is simply too painful to discuss. crazy mixed up kid with a serious wardrobe problem **the sombrero**!

it always goes that way for the DMR's of this world my friend. very sad indeed.   ramone might have concidered anger management, esteban, psycho analysis, but when a man w/ two psychopaths for brothers meets a man with no name, the man w/ no name will
always....well, you know the rest general.

The Rojos probably would've been legit if it weren't for Esteban and Ramon.  Don Miguel (aka Benito) was IMO a likeable, reasonable kinda guy (who looks more than a little like my sixth grade teacher Grin) who didn't want any killing - or any more than absolutely necessary.  The Baxters were very willing to have a stable peace; it was the Rojos (and of course Joe) who wanted war.  I'm sure you remember Ramon's touching speech about laying low for a few years and then masscaring the Baxters when they least expect it.

Benito Rojo - not even Don Benito?  The Italians stripped him of his nobility, that's pretty low.

Exactly my point!  How can you expect Don Miguel to run a multinational enterprise when you have a lunatic like Ramon on your executive management team?  DMR is trying to maintain a comfortable duopoly with Baxter & Co., and all Ramon can think is kill, kill, kill.  This leaves an opening for parasitic investment banking types like Joe to exploit.

Joe was no fool - he knew that in order to kill the snake you have to cut off the head.

if you wanted to know about antonio prieto who plays don miguel, heres all i could find.

born in chile

often credited as anton prieter

first movie Federales y unitarios (1927)

most recent movie Flor salvaje (1968)  

not sure if he's alive or not.

if then keep up the good work.

if not then maybe he'll finally escape from people like esteban and ramon.

 Don Miguel Rojo (Antonio Prieto) is still alive, in fact, he lives in Viņa del Mar - Chile (the same city where I live) . He is owner of a icecream store called: "Bravissimo") I hope talk to him about his character in the film soon

Bye Gringos

Seriously? If his first film was in 1927 he must be about a hundred by now!

I`m not sure about  how many year old he is. But I can tell you that I met to him (face to face) around 3 years ago in a sale of horses and he looked good. I have thought go to talk him and ask him a lot of question but I haven`t had time to do this. I`m usually go to get icecream at the "Bravissimo" and when I asked for him the manager have told me: He came here from time to time. He doesn`t have a special day.
