Armando Bó (May 3, 1914 – October 8, 1981 in Buenos Aires) was an Argentine film actor, film director, film producer, screenwriter and score composer of the classic era. He was known for his sexploitation films in the 1960s and 1970s, including the first nude scene in an Argentine film (El trueno entre las hojas). He should not be confused with his grandson screenwriter Armando Bo.
Bó began acting for film in 1939 in Ambición and made some 50 film appearances as an actor, but by the late 1940s he had already taken up an interest in film production and began as a director, producer, actor, and screenwriter in the early 1950s. He was involved in almost 100 different films during his career. His son, Víctor Bó, is also a prominent actor in Argentina. His grandsons, Academy Award Winners for Best Original Screenplay Nicolás Giacobone and Armando Bó, Jr., credited as Armando Bo, are considered important writers in their country, and have recently broke into Hollywood, collaborating as screenwriters on two films of Alejandro G. Iñárritu.
He was married to Teresa Machinandiarena, and had three children: María Inés, María Jesús, and Víctor. The erroneus popular believing goes that he was married to Isabel Sarli.
