Reception[edit]
Critical response[edit]
When the film was released The New York Times film critic dismissed the film, “The Devil Thumbs a Ride, which came to the Rialto yesterday, is a distinctly pick-up affair … In the role of the thug Lawrence Tierney, who played Dillinger a couple of years back, behaves with the customary arrogance of all gunmen in cheap Hollywood films. It is pictures like this which give the movies a black eye and give us a pain in the neck.”[3]
Recently, film critic Dennis Schwartz was also critical of the film, writing, “Felix E.

Early Years[edit]
Roy Stephan Rosselló Díaz was born in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico. At the age of 11, he enrolled in the country’s top music school and by age 13 had started his career with Menudo, one of the greatest pop phenomena of all time.
Rosselló was a member of Menudo from mid-1983 to January 1987 and debuted on the album A Todo Rock. During his time, Menudo reached great popularity in Asia, more specifically in the Philippines and Japan. They had hits like “Indianápolis” and “Like A Cannonball,” which was featured in the film Cannonball Run 2. It was also during his tenure in the Menudo lineup that the group scored their biggest hit in the United States, “Hold Me.”
Menudo holds the Guinness record for largest audience in a concert, 200 thousand people at Morumbi Stadium, in São Paulo in 1984, while Rosselló was a member of the group.
Post-Menudo[edit]
At age 17, he left Menudo to pursue a solo career. He spent an entire year touring the United States, starred in a movie called Star of the Jungle, and was the host of Frente Jovem, a Brazilian TV show.
In 1991, Roy Rossello studied TV production
