Who Are Those Gals Tota Alba

Dolores Berejano Alba, the daughter of actress Josefina Berejano, was born on March 5, 1914 in Buenos Aires, Argentina where the family had emigrated to. She studied geography, history and literature in her homeland. In the mid-1930s she moved with her family to Spain. It was there she began to appear in theatrical roles for fun in such companies as Membrives Lola, Milagos Leal, Valeriano León and Aurora Redondo. Tota appeared on radio before she made her debut in film in 1955 in “Suspenso en Comunismo” directed by Eduardo Manzanos. She decided to play it safe and make a long secure career in supporting roles. She then went in to television roles during the 1960s and ‘70s appearing as a regular presenter on Spanish TV “Estudio 1”. She also did some film dubbing for imported films needing Spanish voices. By the time Spaghetti Western film making had arrived in Spain Tota Alba was in her 50s and her film appearances were as mother figures. She passed away in Madrid, Spain in 1983.
