Reynaldo Miravalles

Reynaldo Agustín Miravalles de la Luz (born 1923) (also Reinaldo Miravalles[1]) is a Cuban actor residing in Miami, United States.[2][3]

His birthplace is Callejón del Chorro, Old Havana.[1]


  • 1962 Las Doce Sillas, directed by Tomás Gutiérrez Alea. The film is based on the picaresque novel with the same title, The Twelve Chairs by Soviet writer duo Ilf and Petrov. Reynaldo Miravalles stars the protagonist, an enterprising con man Ostap Bender. Set in a tropical context, it is starkly similar to the Soviet one of the novel. A notable difference is that in the Cuban version the hero "sees the light", becomes corrected and joins Cuban revolutionary youth in zafra campaign (sugar cane harvesting).[4]
  • 1971 Una pelea cubana contra los demonios, directed by Tomás Gutiérrez Alea.
  • 1991 Alicia en el pueblo de Maravillas (translated as Alice in Wondertown,[5]), directed by Daniel Díaz Torres, a controversial film of satire, absurdity and horror, which critic Juan Antonio García Borrero has been planning to include in a book under a tentative title Diez películas que estremecieron a Cuba (Ten Films That Shook Cuba) [6]
  • 2013 Esther en alguna parte, directed by Gerardo Chijona. It is a Cuban-Peruvian co-production shot in Cuba based on a novel by Eliseo Alberto. It was the first Cuban film of Miravalles after the 22-year hiatus.[7]
