Salvador Dalí

writer, art department, actor

Salvador Dalí was born on May 11, 1904 in Spain. Salvador Dalí's big-screen debut came with Un chien andalou directed by Luis Buñuel in 1929, strarring Seminarist (uncredited). Salvador Dalí is known for Destino directed by Dominique Monfery, Dora Luz stars as Singing and Jennifer Esposito as Rebecca Drummond. The upcoming new movie Salvador Dalí plays is Looney Tunes: Back in Action which will be released on Nov 14, 2003.

Surrealist-turned-catholic painter Dalí worked on various movies as well. While a member of the French surrealist group, he co-wrote Un chien andalou (1929) and L'Âge d'or (1930) with Luis Buñuel. The latter may have marked the beginning of a long-lasting quarrel with the surrealists when Dalí did not agree on Buñuel's anti-clericalism. While Dalí's painting style became increasingly conventional, he worked on projects with Walt Disney and Alfred Hitchcock, for whom he wrote the dream sequence of La Maison du docteur Edwardes (1945). Plans on a movie with the Marx Brothers were dropped. The money Dalí earned in Hollywood and elsewhere, along with his racism and his fascination for Europe's fascist dictators, put an end to his relations with the (at that time mostly trotskyist) surrealists, whose leading figure André Breton since nicknamed Dalí "Avida Dollars" (anagram).
