Biography

Spirited, diminutive American character player of Mexican extraction, in supporting roles in films of the 1950s and 60s. Gonzalez-Gonzalez generally played fairly stereotyped Hispanic roles for comic relief, with many of his characters' names reflecting this. In both "Ring of Fear" and "The High and the Mighty" (both 1954) his character is named Gonzalez; and in "Strange Lady in Town" (1955) he plays one Martinez Martinez. He occasionally enjoyed more substantial roles, as in Howard Hawks' "Rio Bravo" (1959) and the Jerry Lewis comedy "Hook, Line and Sinker" (1968). Gonzalez-Gonzalez has remained active into the 90s, sending up his earlier western roles in the campy "Lust in the Dust" (1984) and acting in such TV movies as "Bates Motel" (1987) and "Donor" (1990).
