(1944), Pan-Americana (1945), Don Ricardo Returns (1946), That's My Gal (1947), Jungle Jim (1948), Border Incident (1949), Savage Drums (1951), Jesse James' Women (1953), The Treasure of Pancho Villa (1955), Red Sundown (1956), The Broken Star (1956), Compadece al Delincuente (1960) and, much later, Bitter Heritage (1979), her last. She married actor Rory Calhoun and had three children, but they divorced after 22 years. She died after breaking a hip in a fall.
