José Ferrer and sons filming in Kentucky, 1982

Posted on January 21, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by
Oscar-winning actor José Ferrer and sons Miguel, left, and Rafael, were in Woodford County in June 1982 for the filming of a Thoroughbred racing movie, “And They’re Off.” All three Ferrers had roles in the film, as did George Clooney in his first film role. José Ferrer, who won the 1950 best actor Oscar for his role in “Cyrano de Bergerac,” was married twice to Kentucky native Rosemary Clooney, George’s aunt. Miguel and Rafael were two of their five children. Miguel Ferrer, who was 25 when this photo was taken, died Thursday at age 61. He had been fighting throat cancer. He had a long TV and film career, including key roles in the series “Twin Peaks,” “Crossing Jordand” and more recently “NCIS: Los Angeles.” He also had key roles in the films “Robocop,” “Traffic” and “The Manchurian Candidate.” “And They’re Off” had a $10 million budget but earned only $7 million at the box office.
