Renaldo told some interviewers that he actually did not know where he was born. Various sources claim that he was born in Oancea, Galaţi County, Romania as Vasile Dumitru V. Couyanos or Basil Couyanos. Renaldo apparently never knew his biological parents and was raised in several European countries. His birthplace has been generally stated as Romania and he said his first childhood memories were in Romania. He emigrated to America in the 1920s. Failing to support himself as a portrait painter, he tried producing short films. He eventually took up acting and signed with MGM in 1928 where he worked in at least two major films, The Bridge of San Luis Rey and Trader Horn. The latter film was shot on location in Africa and is notorious for adventures that rivaled the source book's and film's plot of a "great white hunter" and a white blonde jungle queen, the lost daughter of a missionary.

    Edward G. Robinson

    Edward G. Robinson (Yiddish: עמנואל גאָלדנבערג; December 12, 1893 – January 26, 1973) was a Romanian-born American actor. A popular star during Hollywood's Golden Age, he is best remembered for his roles as gangsters, such as Rico in his star-making film Little Caesar and as Rocco in Key Largo. Other memorable roles include Barton Keyes in the film noir Double Indemnity, and as Dathan in The Ten Commandments. Robinson was selected for an Honorary Academy Award for his work in the film industry, which was posthumously awarded two months after the actor's death in 1973. He was included in the American Film Institute's list of the 25 greatest male stars in American cinema. Robinson was born as Emanuel Goldenberg to a Yiddish-speaking Romanian Jewish family in Bucharest, the son of Sarah (née Guttman) and Morris Goldenberg, a builder. After one of his brothers was attacked by an antisemitic mob, the family decided to emigrate to the United States. Robinson arrived in New York City on 14 February 1903. He grew up on the Lower East Side, had his Bar Mitzvah at First Roumanian-American congregation, and attended Townsend Harris High School and then the City College of New York. An

    Liviu Ciulei

    Liviu Ciulei (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈlivju t͡ʃjuˈlej]; July 7, 1923 – October 24, 2011) was a Romanian theater and film director, film writer, actor, architect, educator, costume and set designer. During a career spanning over 50 years, he was described by Newsweek as "one of the boldest and most challenging figures on the international scene". Born in Bucharest to Liviu Ciulley, a lawyer and constructor, Ciulei studied architecture and theater at the Royal Conservatory of Music and Theatre. He made his theater debut in 1946, as Puck in an Odeon Theatre production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Soon after, he joined the theater company known as Teatrul Municipal din Bucureşti, later renamed Teatrul Bulandra, and directed his first stage production in 1957 — The Rainmaker. Between 1956-57, his theatre directing work was also reinforced by a series of consistent essays on directing and stage designing, in the context of a national media debate around the modernisation of the theatrical aesthetics. In 1961, Ciulei gained an overall recognition for his version of Shakespeare's As You Like It. He was the recipient of the Directors' Award at the 1965 Cannes Film Festival

He moved to Paris, having developed many concepts that intended as a total artistic renewing starting from their lower levels. He called himself a Lettriste, a movement of which he was initially the only member (at the age of 16 he had published the Manifesto in 1942) and published a system of Lettrist hypergraphics. Others soon joined him, and the movement continues to grow, albeit at times under a confusing number of different names. In the 1960s Lettrist, Lettrist-influenced works and Isidore Isou gained a great deal of respect in France. The influential writer Guy Debord and the artist Gil

    Bernard Natan

    Bernard Natan (July 14, 1886 – October 1942) (born Natan Tannenzaft) was a Franco-Romanian film director and actor of the 1920s and 1930s. He is said by one historian to be one of the earliest (if not the earliest) pornographic film directors and porn stars whose name was known to the public. After his alleged adult film career, Natan moved into mainstream cinema. He eventually acquired the giant French motion picture studio Pathé in 1929. Pathé collapsed in 1935, and Natan was convicted of fraud. However, he laid the foundation for the modern film industry in France and helped revolutionize film technology around the world. Natan was born Natan Tannenzaft (possibly Tanenzapf) to Jewish parents in Iaşi, Romania in 1886. He moved to France after World War I and became a French citizen in 1921, changing his name to the less Jewish-sounding "Bernard Natan." According to Joseph Slade, Natan directed at least one hardcore pornographic film in Romania. He was convicted in 1911 of making pornographic films, but due to his exceptional record fighting in World War I this was removed from his record. It was in France where he made his mark as a producer, writer, director and actor in adult

    Dan Bordeianu

    Dan Bordeianu (born October 23, 1975) is a Romanian actor and occasional singer, mostly known for his parts in telenovelas. His first part came when he was 11, in the movie "Promisiuni", starring Mircea Diaconu and Ion Caramitru. In Romania, he became a familiar face after starring in the 2004-2005 soap-opera "Numai iubirea", produced by MediaPro Pictures, playing the troubled, yet good-hearted brother of main star Alexandru Papadopol. The show brought a high-profile romance with co-star Adela Popescu. MediaPro Pictures capitalised on their real-life relationship by producing two one-season soap-operas, Lacrimi de iubire and Iubire ca în filme, in 2005-2006 and 2006–2007, respectively, where the two also share their love on-screen. This fueled rumours that their relationship is actually a publicity stunt. As of March 21, 2007, they are no longer a couple. He also had minor parts in the movies "Modigliani" and "Gunpowder, Treason & Plot", both filmed on location in Romania. He also played the part of Vlad Dracula's teenage son in the movie Dark Prince: The True Story Of Dracula
