GEORGE O’TOOLE


Americans needed somebody to personify the perfidious uh—Spanish and uh—they couldn’t look to the King of Spain at this time, Alfonso XIII, because he was a 14-year-old kid. His mother, who was the Queen Regent, was an Austrian princess, not very Spanish. But here was this, uh, Weyler.
DAVID NASAW

General Weyler was the perfect villain. He was portrayed brutally in cartoons and editorials and news stories as a savage inhumane brute, as the most bloodthirsty butcher that had ever entered this hemisphere.


NEW YORK JOURNAL

Weyler is a fiendish despot, a brute, a devastator of haciendas, pitiless, cold, an exterminator of men. There is nothing to prevent his carnal brain from inventing torture and infamies of bloody debauchery. The New York Journal, February 1896.
