Hugo Geronimo Fregonese (April 8, 1908 in Mendoza – January 11, 1987 in Tigre)[1] was an Argentine film director and screenwriter who worked both in Hollywood and his home country.[1]

He made his directorial debut in 1943. In 1949, he directed Apenas un delincuente. Most of Fregonese's American films were Westerns and crime melodramas, like Man in the Attic (1953) and Black Tuesday (1954). He worked with renowned actors such as Gary Cooper, Barbara Stanwyck, Anthony Quinn, Edward G. Robinson, Luisa Vehil, Víctor Laplace, Soledad Silveyra, Paul Naschy, and Joel McCrea.

For directing the now-almost forgotten film My Six Convicts (1952), Fregonese was nominated for the Directors Guild of America Award for Outstanding Directing - Feature Film.


A former sports journalist, Fregonese attended Columbia University in 1935, and then was hired to be a technical advisor for films with Latin American themes. By 1938, he was again living in Argentina. There he worked as an editor, assistant director, and short film director before heading to Hollywood, where he developed much of his career as a feature film director.

Fregonese and actress Faith Domergue were married in secret in Ciudad Juárez on October 8, 1947, hours after she divorced bandleader Teddy Stauffer there.[2] Their first child, Diana Maria, was born on January 1, 1949, in Buenos Aires. Their second child, John Anthony, was born on August 22, 1951, in Los Angeles. John, who became an urban planner, died on what would have been his mother's 94th birthday.[3] The couple separated twice before Domergue was granted an uncontested divorce on June 24, 1958.[2]

In his later years, Fregonese directed some pictures in Europe. In 1971, he returned to Argentina, where he continued to make films. While living in the city Tigre, Argentia, Fregonese suffered a heart attack and died on January 17, 1987.[1]
