For nearly four decades, Spanish actor Jose Nieto was a major star in his native country. Though film titles like El Lazzarillo de Torres and La Senora de Fatimas are unfamiliar to American audiences, rest assured that these were favorites among Nieto's Spanish fans. The actor's English-speaking appearances were limited to supporting and character roles in American and British films shot in Spain. Among Jose Nieto's films in this latter category were Alexander the Great (1956), A Farewell to Arms (1957), Solomon and Sheba (1959) (as Ahab) and Dr. Zhivago (1965) (as a Russian priest!)
