The daughter of the Cuban Consul-General to Great Britain, Rosita Garcia (born Olga Garcia-Iniquez) was discovered by Hollywood director Rex Ingram and his wife Alice Terry, who were filming Where the Pavement Ends in Havana, Cuba. Fluent in English, Garcia was brought to Hollywood, where she appeared as an extra in Ben-Hur (1925). Ingram, however, remembered her when he was casting for his first and, as it turned out, only sound film, Baroud (aka Love in Morocco (1932). She played his daughter in this Bedouin romance and a bright future in films was expected. Alas, Rosita Garcia played only minor roles in her two remaining films, Alexander Korda's The Private Life of Don Juan (1933) and The Beachcomber (1938).
