Biography by Hal Erickson

Mexican actor Jose Elias Moreno made his screen bow in the 1943 Spanish-language adaptation of Zola's Nana. He kept busy in films for the next five decades, usually in flamboyant character roles. During the 1950s and 1960s, he was most gainfully employed in horror flicks and so-called "family" films. Connoisseurs of bad movies are intimately familiar with Jose Elias Moreno's con brio performance as the title character in the ubiquitous 1959 Mexican cheapie Santa Claus.
