Ortín, Leopoldo Chato

(1893-1953)
   one of the most popular film comedians of the late 1930s, Chato Ortín was born in Peru. He made his first film in Mexico in 1926, and after a number of comic relief roles, by the late 1930s was starring in screen comedies, generally playing rather dim-witted, stubborn characters. His popularity declined and in the '40s he played mostly supporting parts. Ortín was married to actress Aurora Campuzano. His son "Polo" Ortín is also a comic actor.
