Gilbert Roland was a Mexican-born actor who had a lengthy career in American movies. His career began in silent movies in the 1920s and continued into features and tv shows through the 1980s.
Among his better known roles were those in "We Were Strangers" (1949), "The Bad and the Beautiful" (1952), "The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima" (1952), and "Beneath the 12-Mile Reef" (1953). He also guest-starred in episodes of many popular tv shows of the 1950s and 1960s, such as "Wagon Train", "Frontier Circus", "Gunsmoke", "Combat" and "Bonanza".
In 1984 I sent him this photo, and he returned it within one month.
