Just ran across this wonderful clip of Groucho Marx You Bet your Life.
I remember seeing that. Wasn't there a backstory to this? Or was this episode the beginning? Didn't Gonzalez end up on the Ed Sullivan show?
Now I remember him.
The Scott Rollins Film and TV Trivia Blog: Remembering Pedro Gonzalez Gonzalez
Didn't he turn into "Speedy Gonzalez"?
No. After his appearance on Groucho Marx he was sign by John Wayne and since he never learn to read or write his wife would read his scrip.
Perhaps a cartoon character named Speedy Gonzales based on him?
I suppose it possible. They both came out the same year 1953.
I think he ended up in several movies too. Or in a series.
He had quite a career. Pedro Gonzalez Gonzalez - Wikipedia
From that link: Gonzalez Gonzalez played extra characters behind Mel Blanc in a number of Speedy Gonzales cartoons, including "A Taste of Catnip" and "Go Go Amigo," billed generally as Gonzalez Gonzalez.
Speedy Gonzales, my rememory did not fail me for a change.
Miss that in the article.
Mel Blanc was the voice of Speedy Gonzales.
That link said "Gonzalez Gonzalez played extra characters behind Mel Blanc in a number of Speedy Gonzales cartoons...."
So the character of Speedy Gonzales was not based on Ramiro Gonzalez-Gonzalez.
Not specifically. Speedy was just a racist stereotype. Similar to the American Indian mascot type characters.
I just recognize his grandson Clifton Collins Jr Westworld.
A tribute to Mr. GG.
See how many actors you can identify in that clip.
At my age I have to say I recognize most of them. Nice tribute thanks.
