Actor Edward James Olmos. Few individuals can stir a Chicano high school audience like Olmos, whose powerful character as
the dominant El Pachuco in the movie and stage versions of "Zoot Suit" epitomized the Chicano spirit. So far, he has managed
to blend commercial success and ethnic projects to the extant that, as one admirer said, "In him, we see ourselves."
