Remembering Rafael Pacheco

Rafael Pacheco de Usa was born on August 31, 1921 in Madrid, Spain. Little is known about his life but he was one of the most well known and frequently called upon cinematographers and cameramen in all of Spain. He worked on American and British productions filmed in Spain starting as a still photographer on 1943's "Misterio en la marisma" and as cinematographer on such productions as "Anthony and Cleopatra" (1972) and "Curse of the Black Cat" (1977). His list of 14 Euro-westerns begins with "The Judgment of the Coyote" (1955) and includes such classics as "Fort Yuma Gold" (1966), and "Face to Face" (1967). Today we celebrate Rafael Pacheco’s 90th birthday.
