Quotes

Capt. Thomas Thompson: This is no place for the woman of Victorio.
Chanzana: Chanzana is no more the woman of Victorio. He says to me, "Chanzana, you live long in soldiers' camp. Your mother was Mexican... we do not trust you. Go - stay with soldiers."
Capt. Thomas Thompson: Seems to me that puts you in a bad spot, lady. We don't trust you, either.

Jana Davi/Maureen Hingert
11 May 2008 | by browser-4See all my reviews

not a review on the movie but I wonder if anyone could give more information on Jana Davi/Maureen Hingert? I am a large fan of movies from the 30's, 40's and 50's and liked this lady. It seems a shame she was in so few pictures and would like to know more about her. .... Just an old man's interest. Any input would be appreciated.

Probably not a large number of people can fill in any information for a minor actress but I would like to have any information available.

There HAS to be someone out there that has some information on her.

Thank you for any help.

I just saw her in GUN FEVER and fell in love with her all over again. Don't ask me why, I just did.
