The son of Mexican stage luminary Domingo Soler Sr., Domingo Soler launched his film career in 1934. Within a year he was a star, playing the title role in the patriotic feature Let's Join Pancho Villa. His best-remembered role was the beleaguered Jean Valjean in the 1943 version of Les Miserables. Active until the mid-'60s, he spent his declining film years in such horror epics as The Blood of Nostradamus. Domingo Soler was the brother of actors Andres, Julian, and Fernando Soler.
