Dakar in I pirati della Malesia (1964)
Snapshot-2015-10-24 at 05_38_59 PM-108043620.png

Alejandro Barrera, known professionally both as an actor and wrestler by the name "Dakar", was born on July 9th 1921 in Lima, Peru. He died in Rome on September 14th 2004, at the age of 83.

He was active in Italian films between 1963-1982 working in pretty much all genres. I believe his filmography to be pretty complete, but there is always the possibility that an unknown role could turn up so keep an eye out. He returned to live in South America in the 80's.

In addition to working as an actor and wrestler, Dakar was also an accomplished musician (hence his role in Dov'è Anna?), and both his daughters, Guadalupe and Robertha, are well known singers in South America. I have been moderator for Dakar's Facebook Page for some years now and through my work there I have been in contact with his daughters and his nephew Manuel, who have been very supportive and have provided me with photos and information, so I can verify that his biographical details are correct. There are a selection of personal photographs which they have kindly allowed me to share which can be seen on his Facebook page.

Through the Facebook page I have been contacted by a number of people who knew Alejandro, some even reconnecting as a result, and the one thing that they have all made clear is what a wonderful, gentle and joyous man he was, much-loved by all who knew him and quite the opposite to his usual screen personas.

I tre sergenti del Bengala (1964) as Suspicious man in bar. Dakar has an odd role in this one, he follows Frankie Ross (Richard Harrison) through the market and into a bar where he sits watching him and then... nothing! Maybe he had an extra scene that was deleted, for as it stands there is never any explanation for his presence.
