Pic of the Day: “Mermaids of Tiburon” revisited

Mermaids of Tiburon

Gonzales-Gonzales was a familiar face in films and on television in the 1950s and ’60s, almost always portraying the stereotypical Latino characters of the day. He recorded a novelty 45 rpm disc in 1964 with the tunes “Pancho Claus” and “Tacos for Two.” His brother Pedro co-starred with Tim in the Sheriff of Cochise episode “The Great Train Robbery” (10.5.56).
