Alberto Morin

Biography

Date of Birth 26 December 1902, San Juan, Puerto Rico Date of Death 7 April 1989, Burbank, California, USA (stroke) Birth Name Salvador R. López Born in San Juan Puerto Rico, actor Alberto Morin received his education in France. While in that country he worked briefly for Pathe Freres, a major film distribution firm, then studied theatre at the Escuela de Mimica in Mexico. Morin was an OSS officer during World War II, and spoke seven languages fluently. He met director John Ford during that period--Ford was a naval officer who also worked with the OSS--and after the war, Ford put Morin in many of his films. Upon the advent of talking pictures, Morin was signed by Fox Pictures to make Spanish-language films for the South American market. He remained in Hollywood as a character actor, seldom getting much of a part but nearly always making an impression in his few seconds of screen time. Morin also worked steadily in radio and on such TV weeklies as Dobie Gillis and Mr. Roberts, sometimes billed as Albert Morin. During his five decades in Hollywood, Alberto Morin contributed uncredited performances in several of Tinseltown's most laudable achievements: he played Rene Picard in the Bazaar sequence in Gone With the Wind (1939), was a French military officer at Rick's Cafe Americain in Casablanca (1942), a detective in To Catch a Thief (1955, uncredited) and showed up as a boat skipper in Key Largo (1947). Morin died April 7, 1989 in Burbank, California.
