Fuad Jorge Jury (28 May 1938 – 5 November 2012), commonly known as Leonardo Favio (Spanish pronunciation: [leoˈnaɾðo ˈfaβjo]), was an Argentine singer, actor, film director and screenwriter. He is considered one of Argentina's best film directors and most enduring cultural figures as well as a popular singer-songwriter throughout Latin America.Much beloved in Latin America, he was one of the most successful Argentine singers in the 1960s and 1970s with big hits like Ding, dong estas cosas del amor (with Carola), O quizás simplemente le regale una rosa, Fuiste mía un verano, Ella ya me olvidó, Quiero aprender de memoria, Mi tristeza es mía y nada más, Para saber cómo es la soledad, Mi amante niña mi compañera, Ni el clavel ni la rosa, La foto de carnet, No jueges más, Chiquillada and La cita and starred in many films.Without detriment to his outstanding career as a singer and songwriter, at the time he began to sing in public, he was already an established film director. His first feature movie – Chronicle of a Boy Alone – and the second one – El Romance del Aniceto y la Francisca – compete in the consensus of Argentine critics to be considered the best Argentine movie of all times, while the agreement is almost unanimous in considering Leonardo Favio as the best Argentine movie director of all times.
