Rafael Albaicin, Nuevo Figura de Nuestro Cine [archived article]

 

Rafael Albaicin, New Figure of Our Cinema

Diario de Burgos

May 1, 1962

Rafael Albaicin, who, due to the exquisiteness of his art (matador), occupied a preferential place in our brava festival, has been captured in the cinema. He has great presence. He is a handsome and arrogant figure. Due to his youth and sensitivity as a great artist, innate qualities in Rafael Albaicin, it is for what we predict a brilliant future for him in the seventh art. In the picture that we have reproduced he appears, with grace and ease, on the steed, in a scene from "Tierra Brutal", a film currently being filmed under the direction of Michael Carreras.
