Marcelo Arroita-Jáuregui in The Blood of Fu Manchu (1968)

Marcelo Arroita-Jáuregui was, among other things, a Spanish character actor, active in Spanish films from the early-1960's until the early-1980’s.

He was born in La Hermida, Spain on October 2nd 1922.

Marcelo studied at university and graduated with a degree in law. He lived in the Santa Maria college in Madrid.

He was well respected among Spanish and international film makers as a film critic (published in numerous magazines) and more importantly as the liberal and politically-motivated secretary of film censorship in Madrid (this was during the years of Franco's dictatorship). In 1956 he was credited as 2nd assistant director on the prestigious production Calle Mayor, directed by Juan Antonio Bardem, his only film production credit. He is also known as a writer (including a book on director Rouben Mamoulian), poet (2 volumes published in the 1950’s) and translator.

From the mid-sixties he worked quite prolifically as a character actor, mostly in small roles, which he continued into the mid-seventies, with a few further roles in the early 1980’s.

He died from a heart attack in Santander on January 7th 1992, at the age of 69. He was buried in the Municipal Cemetery of Ciriego, Santander.

His biographical details are gathered from, and are corroberated by, numerous respectable online sources and obituaries.

I have found an undocumented role for Marcelo, so there could be more.
