Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Linda Loredo was an American born actress and dancer of Mexican descent. She was born June 20, 1907 in the Arizona Territory and died August 11, 1931 in Los Angeles, California, from postoperative complications following surgery. She is most commonly associated with Laurel and Hardy short subjects. Her sister, Maria Loredo, was also an actress. Loredo entered silent films in 1927, playing Carmen in the ten-installment silent serial Heroes of the Wild, but her career really came into its own with the advent of sound. The Hal Roach Studios produced foreign-language versions of their most popular series -- Laurel and Hardy, Charley Chase, Our Gang and Harry Langdon -- for the lucrative Spanish markets in both hemispheres. Typically, the headline stars would stay on upon completion of the English language version, and then would speak their foreign lines phonetically from cue cards in shot-for-shot remakes; they would be joined by native-speaking supporting players to round out the cast. Loredo's fluency in Spanish was of great value in the making of these films.show more
