Paco Jamandreu was a well known Argentine fashion designer and actor. He was a personal friend of Eva Peron and participated as costume designer in multiple Argentine films.
Jamandreu began his friendship with Peron before she married Juan Peron. At first, their relationship was a business one; as time went by, he became her confidant, and viceversa. His friendship with Eva Peron was perpetuated in the big screen when an Argentine film about Ms. Peron was released. According to the film, Jamandreu admitted to Ms. Peron that he was homosexual, telling her that "being homosexual in Argentina is just like being poor".
In 1942, Jamandreu made his debut as movie costume designer, in a movie named Historia de crimenes ("Crime Story"). He followed that by designing the clothes for El Muerto Falta a la Cita ("The Dead One Missed the Appointment"), released in 1944, and in 1947's El Misterioso Tio Silas ("The Mysterious Uncle Silas"). Jamandreu designed clothes for only two movies during the 1950s.
