Well, that's it, for now. If anyone can come up with any clearer, or different shots, go for it. At least every Flaca scene
has been represented, anyway.

Rich, in all the years many of us have visited Brackettville, how come we've never met him? He could have ridden with you to the gala.

He doesn't seem to grasp what his iconic "bit part" means to all of us. We have tried to get him involved in Alamo movie events at Alamo Village to no avail. He did attend the 1998 Alamo movie reunion when Pilar and Joan O'Brien were here, but did not come to the 45th. Anny. screening of the movie or the previous one in the Alamo compound, even though Tulisha sent him an invitation and I personally encouraged him. He is a quiet, unobtrusive Brackettvillain who has (I think) a night watchman's job. Not into the arts -- or the limelight.

Any pictures of him present day floating around Rich? I remember when you told me about him years ago in a visit to Alamo Village! Now everytime I go by the store I eyeball that house, and feel the need to ring a doorbell, meet the man, and snap a shot! (of course I have not, I respect the mans privacy too much!) :( :D But I do wish he would at least make his presence know to us Alamo film fanatics!

Thephotoarchive has posted what they claim is a color trans of Ms. Cristal today on EBAY. It's a shot of her standing in the stream with her
skirt raised to her waist. The asking price is $24.99.

During a lull in the filming while at Sabinal, Linda recognized that none of the photographers were paying any attention to her (imagine that!). So she asked if they wanted to take any pictures of her; she would jump in the river. Naturally, they said yes, and she did. Later, she reflected how selfish it was of her as her wardrobe mistress had to work all night to dry and iron her costume for the next days shooting. (As told to me in an interview in 2009).

I feel like asking, "Tell me again why Linda Cristal is in the creek." Sort of like Red Buttons with John Wayne in Hatari! "Tell me again about how the rocket put the net right over the monkeys." :lol:

Dear Friends,
If you all can get your head out of the clouds, for a moment. The 4x5 trannie of LC for auction, which depicts her getting out of the river...is a copytran. It was one of those made up for the presskit in numbers...from an original 2-1/4 square color negative. The contact sheet for this image still exists (showing it as square). I'm sorry to burst your bubble.

Just this past week an eBay seller had this 1961 movie still for sale, claiming that it was Linda Cristal
in THE ALAMO. After Ashley Ward pointed out that it was not Linda Cristal, John Farkis contacted the
seller who then removed the listing as positive identification of the actress in the still could not be made.

Image
In doing some research of prominent actresses of 1961-1962, I discovered that Spanish actress Carmen
Sevilla had appeared as Mary Magdalene in the 1961 film KING OF KINGS. In 1962, she appeared in two
Spanish films: as "Charo" in "El balcon de la Luna" and as "Monica Duran" in Buscando a Monica". The still
could be from any of those films. (It must be noted that this "still" is actually a posed shot.) I have included
some photos of Carmen Sevilla from 1961-1962 to compare with the still.

I am convinced that the still is indeed of Carmen Sevilla who bears a striking resemblance to Linda Cristal.
What do you think?

Ok...I have this one figured out! In order to not find herself (Linda) too typecast, she also took on yet
another personality, thus allowing her to work even more freely in the motion picture market place.
Proof? Proof, you ask. Well, that is easy. Have you ever seen the two women in the same room at the
same time :? ? Well, have you? It is yet another 'Clark Kent/Superman-thingy,' from Hollywood, this
time for real 8-) ! W>
