Ishmael Rodriguezone of Pedro Infante’s close friends, was not only the filmmaker he trusted the most throughout his career, but he also became his confidant, with whom he shared his concerns, insecurities and likes.
The director assured that the Sinaloan never felt a predilection for any of the projects in which he participated, but that he was proud of what he had been able to do with some of his characters.
The first tape from which the Immortal Idol he was happy to have done was The Three Huastecs (1948), as he managed to play three characters at the same time and with different voices.
The actor’s challenge was that he had to play all three Andrade brotherswhich were physically identical, but their character was completely opposite, which causes repeated conflicts among them.
In addition, according to Ismael, Pedro liked that in this project he was able to work with some of the actresses he most loved and admired: Sarah Garciawith whom he had a very bad relationship at first, and Blanca Estela Pavonwho was one of his most important dumbbells in the cinema.
