Remembering Lina Yegros

Avelina Yegros Antón was born on December 6, 1914 in Madrid, Madrid, Spain. She began her career at the age of 17 on stage, but soon moved to the cinema, where she was known as "La Dulce Llorona" ("The Sweet Weeper"), because she often played dramatic roles. She became a movie star during Spanish Second Republic and is best remembered for films such as "La Bien Pagada" (1933), "Sor Ángelica" (1934), "¿Quién me Quiere a Mi?" (1936), "Polizón a Bordo" (1941), "Un Marido a Precio Fijo"(1942), "Fuenteovejuna" (1946), "Pequeñeces" (1950), "Debla, la Virgen Gitana" (1950), "Malvaloca" (1954), "Han Matado un Cadáver" (1960), "Canción de Cuna" (1961), "Teresa de Jesús" (1962).
Linda appeared in only one Euro-western: “Mutiny at Fort Sharp” (1965) with Broderick Crawford.
Yegros died on May 19, 1978 in Madrid, Spain.
Today we remember Linda Yegros on what would have been her 100th birthday.
