30 Gorgeous Photos of Mexican Actress Katy Jurado in the 1950s

Born 1924 as María Cristina Estela Marcela Jurado García in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexican actress Katy Jurado began her acting career in Mexico. She achieved some renown in her country’s cinema during the period known as the Golden Age of Mexican cinema (1940s–1950s).


In 1951, Jurado was discovered by American filmmakers in Mexico and began her Hollywood career. She acted in notable Western films of the 1950s and 1960s.

An exotic beauty, Jurado specialized in interpretations of complex, stereotyped and sexualized women. Her talent for playing a variety of characters helped pave the way for Mexican actresses in American cinema.

Jurado was the first Latin American actress nominated for an Oscar, as Best Supporting Actress for her work in Broken Lance (1954), and was the first to win a Golden Globe Award, for her performance in High Noon (1952).

Jurado died of kidney failure and pulmonary disease in 2002 at the age of 78 at her home in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico. She has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7065 Hollywood Boulevard for her contributions to motion pictures.
