Lara, Agustín

(Agustín Lara Aguirre del Pino)
(1897 or '98?-1970)
   famous composer who also sang, acted, and consorted with (and often married) numerous beautiful women (including María Félix). Thin, unprepossessing, his face marred by a scar (inflicted by a woman, of course), Lara began working as a pianist and singer in the 1920s, but first achieved fame in the early 1930s on the radio. Lara, known as "El Flaco de Oro" (The Golden Skinny One), appeared in a number of films and his songs were heard in many more. A romanticized version of his life was brought to the screen as La vida de Agustín Lara, starring Germán Robles.
