Universal Studios has put together an impressive list of twenty-five films to celebrate its 100th anniversary, and to fill Christmas stockings across the country (actually, it's a little pricey for a stocking stuffer: slightly more than $200, not including shipping. But 25 classic movies on 25 CD's? That's like $8.00 a disk–a pretty good deal.
Best of all, almost a quarter of the classic films, which run the gamut from "The Birds" to "The Bourne Identity," include Latinos in the cast. The Latino contenders include:
"Dracula" Spanish (1931) (Blu-ray Collection only) - Lupita Tovar, Carlos Villarías. The actors in the film were from Mexico, Spain, Argentina, and Cuba.
"American Graffiti" (1973) - Manuel Padilla Jr.
"Scarface" (1983) - Steven Bauer, Miriam Colon, Pepe Serna, Tony Perez, Ángel Salazar, Arnaldo Santana, and may others…even Manuel Padilla Jr.
"The Breakfast" Club - Emilio Estevez
"Do the Right Thing" - Miguel Sandoval, Rosie Perez, Luis Antonio Ramos, Shawn Elliott (Santiago), and a few others.
"Jurassic Park" (1993) - Miguel Sandoval
"The Fast and the Furious" (2001) - Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Noel Gugliemi and of course others in smaller roles.
