Happy 60th Birthday Cristina Galbó
Born Cristina Galbó Sanchez on January 17, 1950 in Madrid, Spain. She and her sister Beatriz Galbó became child actresses and Cristina would go on to appear in over 30 films mainly during the 1960s and '70s. She made her mark in horror/terror films during this period in such picutres as “The House that Screamed” (1969), “Solange” (1972) and “Let Sleeping Corpses Lie” (1974). Before this she appeared in three Euro-westerns “The Four Who Came to Kill Sartna” (1965), “The Fury of Johnny Kid” (1966) and “Twice a Judas” (1968). It was on “The Fury of Johnny Kid” that she met her future husband Peter Lee Lawrence. They were married in 1969 and the union lasted until Lawrence's untimely death in 1974. Cristina left the films in the late 1980's and came to the United States where she taught flamenco dancing in the California State University system.. Today we celebrate Cristina Galbó's 60th birthday.
