WHV preps Infante DVD collection


MEXICO CITY -- Warner Home Video in the U.S. is set to release 23 DVD titles starring Pedro Infante, an icon of Mexico's so-called Golden Age of Cinema.

The April 10 release date coincides with the 50th anniversary of Infante's death. The actor died in a plane crash in 1957.

The films in the Pedro Infante Collection, which have never been released stateside, will be available in major retailers, bookstores and online stores as Warner Home Video aims to target the burgeoning U.S. Latino market.

Among the classics to hit the shelves are the drama "Cuando Lloran Los Valientes" (When the Brave Cry) and the comedy "Dicen que Soy Mujeriego" (They Say I Am a Womanizer).
