Legendary actor and Emmy winner Henry Darrow (Manolito Montoya in "The High Chaparral", Zorro and many others) will be presenting his critically acclaimed book "Henry Darrow: Lightning in the Bottle," by Jan Pippins and Darrow, about his life and long acting career.
Darrow, born Enrique Tomás Delgado, catapulted to international stardom in 1967 as sexy, complex "Manolito Montoya" in the western "The High Chaparral." He was the first actor of Puerto Rican heritage to star in television series.
"Henry survived and had a career when, if you were Latino, you couldn't be just good. You had to be beyond great and that's Henry," says noted writer/entertainer Rick Najera.
At the height of his fame, Darrow put his career on the line to open doors for other Hispanics. Recently featured on the PBS series "Pioneers in Television", he continued to break ground for over fifty years as a working actor. The first Hispanic actor to play Zorro, he is also the only actor to have starring roles in three Zorro series and one of two actors to play both Zorro and the father of Zorro.
