Character actor, Rodolfo Acosta, was born on Jul 29, 1920 in Chihuahua, Mexico. Acosta appeared in over 120 film and TV roles. His best known films include Hondo, One-Eyed Jacks, The Sons of Katie Elder, Bandido, and Flaming Star. Acosta died at the age of 54 on Nov 7, 1974 in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles and was laid to rest in Forest Lawn (Hollywood Hills) Cemetery in Los Angeles, CA.
Dark, moustachioed and hawkishly handsome, Rodolfo Acosta was mostly confined to playing sneering bandits in huge sombreros. He was a little cold, perhaps, for bonafide leading roles, although he was top-billed once, in The Tijuana Story, a minor 'meller'. Then it was back to a whole posse of westerns before his early death. He was sometimes billed as Rudy or Rudolfo.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
