 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Hernando de Soto
De Soto played a prominent part in the engagements which completed the conquest of Peru, including the battle which resulted in the capture of Cuzco, the capital.
The ten ships of de Soto shortly after arrived in the harbour of Santiago de Cuba where the members of the expedition were well received by the Cubans, whose fêtes in honour of the new-comers lasted several weeks.
De Soto now ordered Diego Maldonado, a captain of infantry who had served him well, to give up his command, and take two ships with which he was to explore the coast of Florida for a distance of one hundred leagues to the west of Aute, and map out its bays and inlets.

 Willem De Kooning
De Kooning tries to escape from the past and is thus tied to it.
So the sight of de Kooning stuck in one corner is like watching a blind man. He can't - as far as we can see - tell one stroke from another, itself an exaggeration of not being able to tell one part from another, or one picture, or one period.
De Kooning, however, has partly written it, since his periods are first-class delusions.

 Giorgio De Chirico
That was "the city par excellence of art and the intellect," as de Chirico wrote, where "any man worthy of the name of artist must exact the recognition of his merit." Paris took young de Chirico, as it took young Chagall, and turned him from a naive provincial fabulist into a major painter.
De Chirican perspective was not meant to set the viewer in a secure, measurable space.

 AskMen.com - Robert De Niro
We put Robert De Niro in the same category as Al Pacino; he's one of America's finest character actors.
Robert De Niro has done so much with such diverse roles that he has the enviable position of being linked with some of film's most memorable characters such as Vito Corleone in The Godfather, Part II, Al Capone in The Untouchables, or Jake La Motta in Raging Bull.
De Niro, who was also known as "Bobby Milk" because he was so pale, was shy as a young boy.

 History of Cinco de Mayo - MexOnline.com - Mexican Holidays
The holiday of Cinco De Mayo, The 5th Of May, commemorates the victory of the Mexicans over the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862.
For the most part, the holiday of Cinco de Mayo is more of a regional holiday in Mexico, celebrated most vigorously in the state of Puebla.
Celebrating Cinco de Mayo has become increasingly popular along the U.S.-Mexico border and in parts of the U.S. that have a high population of people with a Mexican heritage.

 De Palma a la Mod
This represents De Palma's original vision for the film, and Gregg Henry is added back into the cast as the prosecuting counsel during the now extended court-martial sequences (no, I didn't know he had been in the original cut, either-- that makes six films with De Palma, including The Black Dahlia).
I really hope the studio doesn't force De Palma to cut it down because all the nuances, LA in the 1940s, the complex narrative, and the smaller characters are excellent.
De Palma has confirmed that he did indeed oversee the new cut of the film for this DVD release.

As an army conscript in Ferrara in 1915 de Chirico met the futurist painter Carlo Carrà; together they founded the magazine Pittura Metafisica in 1920.
From 1915 to 1925 de Chirico painted bizarre, faceless mannequins and juxtaposed wildly unrelated objects in his still lifes, a technique adopted by the surrealists.
From 1924 to 1930 de Chirico gave enormous impetus to the surrealist movement and influenced such surrealists as Yves Tanguy and Salvador Dalí.
