Mario Moreno (1911-1993), professionally known as Cantinflas, was a prolific Mexican comic film actor, producer, and screenwriter. Commonly regarded as “the Charlie Chaplin of Mexico” for his onscreen persona of the underdog who overcame all odds in more than 55 films, he was a business leader, activist and philanthropist who became a symbol of hope for the downtrodden and impoverished. He won a Golden Globe award in 1957 and received an additional nomination in 1961.
