From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Eduardo Cansino Jr. (October 13, 1919 – March 11, 1974) was an actor, the son of Volga Hayworth, a Ziegfeld Follies showgirl, and Spanish–Andalusian dance master Eduardo Cansino Sr.

He was the younger brother of actress Rita Hayworth and the older brother of actor Vernon Cansino (1922–1974). The Cansino family lived in a theatrical boarding house in Broadway where Eduardo Cansino Sr. was appearing nightly with his sister Elisa as The Dancing Cansinos.

By 1929, however, the family was having trouble finding a steady job on vaudeville so they moved out west to Hollywood. Eduardo Cansino Jr. appeared in a fair number of films during the 1950s, but generally with small parts.
