#Fact
1He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 7083 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
2The films A.T.M.: ¡¡A toda máquina!! (1951) and ¡¿Qué te ha dado esa mujer?! (1951) were filmed at the same time. He performed all the motorcycle stunts, including a dangerous one involving an exploding shack.
3Some years before his death, he had an accident that resulted in a fractured skull, and a metal plate was put in his head. He was left with a big scar on top of his head, making him bald, so he bought a very expensive, custom-made, high-quality toupee.
4Father of actors Pedro Infante Jr. and Cruz Infante.
5He won the Ariel (Mexican Academy Award) for Best Actor in 1956 for La vida no vale nada (1955).
6Died as the pilot of a B-24 WW II bomber converted to cargo plane
