Jose Ferrer

José Ferrer
Puerto Rican José Ferrer was born in 1912. He first worked as a Broadway actor, and his first movie role was in 1948’s Joan of Arc, which earned him an Oscar nomination. Ferrer’s refined way of speaking brought him roles as academics and snobs. Ferrer is the first Hispanic actor to win an Academy Award for 1950’s Cyrano de Bergerac. In Caine Mutiny, he proved that even in small doses, he could hold his own against Hollywood great Humphrey Bogart.
