Onscreen with RKO from 1945, this Spanish-born starlet began her career as Isabelita, performing the usual screen chores demanded of Latin beauties, exotic jungle sirens, cantina girls, and so on. A starring role opposite stunt man Fred Coby in PRC's Zorro wannabe Don Ricardo Returns (1946) led nowhere and she changed her name to Lita Baron in the 1950s. Baron is perhaps best remembered today for marrying handsome action lead Rory Calhoun, a union that lasted from 1948 to 1970 and produced three children. She appeared opposite her husband in Red Sundown (1956), then retired.
