Gustavo Alatriste is a Mexican actor, director and producer of films. He was married from 1961 through 1967 to the actress Silvia Pinal. They had one daughter, actress Viridiana Alatriste. He was also married several other times (actresses Ariadne Welter, and Sonia Infante--the latter for 18 years) and had six other children.

He began his career producing Luis Buñuel's Viridiana, which starred his then wife, the actress Silvia Pinal. The film, considered one of the greatest in Cinema of Spain, was the first of three films by the trio. In the eighties, Alatriste was named vice president of the Mexican CANACINE film organization. Alatriste died of pancreatic cancer on 22 July 2006 in Houston Texas (some newspaper stories cite 25 July but apparently the news was withheld for several days. La Crònica de hoy gives the date and time of death as Saturday 22 July at 11:45pm, according to Alatriste's ex-wife Sonia Infante).
