The Mexican Señorita and the Texas Cowboy

Elena Angela Verdugo was an American actress born of Spanish parents in Paso Robles, California. In addition to acting in many television shows from the 1950’s through the 1980’s, she is best remembered  as Consuelo Lopez, the assistant to Marcus Welby, M.D. in the television show that ran from 1969 to 1976.

In the 1940’s she was a sexy young beauty featured in many movies that required a Hispanic or Gypsy girl. She was offered a lucrative studio contract, but it specified that she must lose weight, and she thought her measurements were perfect as they were, and I don’t disagree.

In this story about 1949 cowboys and bad-guys in Mexico, she is the young owner of the Big Sombrero ranch. The ranch next to hers is owned by a bad-guy who intends to marry the young Seniorita, then sell both ranches to a bigger scoundrel. Before selling the ranches to the big scoundrel, our bad guy must drive off the poor peasant ranchers who have lived and ranched on his land for generations. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
