Whenever a film needed a plump mamacita, a downtrodden Mexican peon, or someone's Spanish aunt, Hollywood studios usually contacted Soledad Jiminez. She had reportedly appeared in films as early as the 1915 Carmen with Geraldine Farrar, but Jiminez did not gain much notice until the talkie era, when she turned up as a cook in one of the first sound Westerns, the award-winning In Old Arizona (1929). Often seen in both high and low-budget oaters, Jiminez also appeared as the innkeeper in The Cockeyed World (1929), Dolores del Rio's maid in In Caliente (1935), Edward G. Robinson's mama in Kid Galahad (1937), and a nurse in Fiesta (1942). In addition, she appeared regularly in foreign language versions of Hollywood films. Retired since 1952, Jiminez died of a stroke at the Motion Picture Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills, CA, where she had been a resident for six years.
