The Champion Boxers and the Mexican Fireball, or Ringside Rhumba

Before we loved Lucy with her Spanish speaking husband, there was Armida, a Spanish speaking fireball. Armida Vendrell was born in Aguascalientes, Mexico. Her father was ‘The Great Arnold,’ a famous magician in Spain who emigrated to Mexico before Armida was born.

Armida and her sisters would assist their magician father, and also sing and dance before and after his magic show. One day while performing in the Hidalgo theater in Los Angeles, a Vaudeville talent scout saw the performance and offered Armida a spot on the Vaudeville circuit. It wasn’t long until she was offered a very generous movie contract, because Armida’s fiery temperament blended with her blazing beauty in just the right proportions to please both movie producers and her audiences.

In this adventure, World War Two is raging, but back home in America the fighting was inside the boxing ring with tough men and flying leather. Armida discovers that her brother is a boxer with a knockout punch, so she becomes his trainer, and soon he is ready to fight the champion.

Unfortunately, Armida is in love with the champion, and she will do whatever it takes to prevent the two men she loves from meeting in the ring. Even more unfortunately, the champ’s boxing promoter has a bit of gangster in him, and the big match will be fixed to guarantee that one of the men will win, and one will not. It looks like the loser of the big match will be . . . . Armida, the Girl from Monterrey. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
