Young Armendariz lived in a suburb of Mexico city, but in 1921 his parents moved to Texas. Parents died when he was only 9 years old, and he came to be raised in the house of his uncle Francisco. In 1931 he graduated from the faculty of engineering at the state Polytechnic University. Over time, under the leadership of a talented Director Emilio Fernandez and Pedro Armendariz and a young actress, Dolores del río became the symbol of Mexican cinema, known to film enthusiasts from different corners of the globe.
