Tony D'Algy (Antonio Lozano Guedes Infante)
Tony d'Algy was born in Angola, then a Portuguese colony, of a Spanish mother and Portuguese father, which gave him the Portuguese nationality, and a Spanish accent. Some say he was registered later as António Soares Infante. He was the first Latin lover in Hollywood, and played opposite 'Rodolfo Valentino' in Monsieur Beaucaire (1924) and A Sainted Devil (1924), showing equal cockiness, but less mannerisms. Since 1928 he worked in Spain ('La Mujer Soñada' and 'Raza de Hidalgos'), France, and Belgium.
