Molino Rojo, Antonio

Antonio Molino Rojo in Un rayo de luz (1960)
Antonio Molino Rojo was a small-part and background actor, active in Spanish and European films from the late 1940''s to the late 1980's.

All sources seem agreed that he was born in Venta de Baños, Spain on September 14th 1926. IMDb reports that he was 6' 0½" (1.84 m) tall.

Some sources report that he started out as a sportsman. He made his film debut in 1948 at the age of 22, then worked throughout the 50's mostly in uncredited background roles. From the start of the 60's he started appearing in larger small roles, mostly credited, and he was particularly active in the spaghetti western genre. His work pace slowed somewhat in the late 70's and 80's, at which time he tended to appear mostly in films shot in Barcelona, with his final film appearances coming in 1988.

Antonio died in Barcelona on November 2nd 2011, at the age of 85.

I have found a number of undocumented 50's background roles and am sure that still more will appear.

Titles to check
  • Cerca del cielo (1951) EdCE. I searched for him in a rather poor quality copy with no luck, but if he doesn't appear prominently then it's quite possible I missed him.
  • La llamada de Africa (1952) EdCE
  • El mensaje (1954) IMDb
  • Castillos en pie de paz (1956 short film) IMDb
  • Le belle dell'aria, aka Las aeroguapas (1957) EdCE
  • Gli zitelloni, aka Una mujer para Marcelo (1958) IMDb. Again I searched for him in a poor quality copy with no luck, but may have missed him if he isn't seen prominently
  • El vagabundo y la estrella (1960) IMDb
  • Juicio final (1960) IMDb
  • Un americano en Toledo (1960) IMDb
  • Relación matrimonial y otras cosas (1975) IMDb
  • Gesucht wird... (1976 TV series) S. 1, Ep. 8: "Theo Bieber", IMDb as Victor
  • Bragas húmedas (1984) EdCE as director
  • Acosada (1985) IMDb as Police commissioner

No Antonio!
Titles where Antonio is listed as appearing somewhere online, but cannot be found. There always has to be one.
  • La ragazza di Piazza San Pietro, aka La muchacha de la plaza de San Pedro (1958) IMDb. Not found after several searches. While this is a Spanish co-production, the film appears to have been shot entirely in Italy, so Antonio's appearance in an uncredited bit part would seem unlikely.
  • La grande notte di Ringo (1966) IMDb. Not found by myself or Carlos
  • Surcouf, l'eroe dei sette mari (1966) IMDb as Andre Chambles. Does not appear, presumably confused with his appearance playing this role in the sequel
  • Los desesperados (1969) IMDb. Not found by myself or Carlos. It would appear that he has been mixed up with Vidal Molina, who is credited, but not listed on IMDb.
  • Arizona si scatenò... e li fece fuori tutti! (1970) IMDb as Bounty hunter. Not found by myself or Carlos. This one looks to be a mis-identification with another actor of vaguely similar looks who does appear in this role.

Mr. Arkadin, aka Confidential Report (1955) as Man with Arkadin's secretaries at the costume party.

It's possible he is supposed to be one of the secretaries, but since he neither speaks nor gets spoken to then it is impossible to know for sure.
