MY mistake-bad information
My deepest apologies to the Lady Acquanetta, her family, friends, fans. She was born Burnu Acquanetta ( meaning Burning Fire-Deep Water)near Ozone Wyoming in 1921, to a Arapahoe mother, half Cherokee/english-french father, put up for adoption, or foster care she was raised in Norristown Penn., her named was changed to Mildred Davenport, at the age of 16 she went to New York became a model, and she changed her name back to Burnu Acquanetta, then to hollywood where she was spotted by a talent scout, and began her career in films, the studio liked her exotic look, and changed her to being called the " Venezuelan Volcano", so she would be more exotic. Her first film was in 1943 Arabian Nights, followed by many exotic female roles. In 1951 she walked out on her studio contract after being sexually harassed by a studio exec., she then went on to be Amercia's Goodwill Ambassador to Mexico, she would later return to the U.S., after ending her a marriage to a Mexcian citizen, she married a business man from Phoenix Arizonia, where she also hosted local radio/TV shows, she returned to the screen in 1989 for Grizzly Adams-The Legend never dies, she would be a frequent quest at Universal Studio reunions, and became a fan fovorite, as her horror films had become film classics. She passed away in 2004, but will always remain a beautiful Queen of the cinematic jungle.
Burnu Acquanetta -which means "Burning Fire-Deep Water", she was also called by the studio "The Venezuelan Volcano", in real life her name was Mildred Davenport of Ozone Wyoming born in 1921 of Arapahoe Indian decent. Her dark, exotic looks gave her the look the studios wanted for torpical films, so she was renamed and reborn with a new past, she went onto star in many B films such as Tarzan and the Leopard Woman, Captive Woman, Jungle Woman, ect. She left left films in the 1950's returned in the 1990's in the Legend of Grizzly Adams, she passed away in 2004. But she left a mark as the beautiful, extoic Acquanetta.
