In a world filled with hate and misery, Linda Cristal was always an example of class and grace. Her story of overcoming personal tragedy at such a young age and rising to success is an inspiration.

My condolences to the family, friends and the multitude of fans who love Linda Cristal. She will be missed in this life without her I pray she is at peace. I thank her for sharing her tremendous talent to the world. I only found out today that she is in the spirit world now. I enjoy High Chaparral most every day to experience the joy of her performances. I have laughed and cried; felt happiness and pain with her and her fellow actors. Yes Heaven and others who have gone on before her are the recipients of her presence. We will all be together when our own book of life is complete.

As a young child and a product of a bi-racial family, the High Chaparral meant a lot to me back in the '60s. Seeing Erickson and Cristal together made my family arrangement seem normal in a time when it was more unusual in my community. That Arizona ranch in the late 1800s was a time and place I wanted to be. Her passing and the memories of that great series have been on my mind quite a bit for a couple of weeks now. For a person I've never met, she must have made quite an impression! May God go with her family!

She instantly dominated every scene she was in, in a multiculturally-themed, entertaining show with well-developed character interactions which is just as watchable today as it was 50 years ago. Especially liked her somewhat anachronostic but always good looking jewel--toned wardrobe. High Chapparal stands as her lasting memorial to her talent.

I loved "The High Chaparrel" so much. When i was 13-16, a lonely girl in North Carolina, I wanted to look like beautiful Victoria. I loved the way she and her handsome brother Manolito Montoya interacted with each other. The show had an excellent cast: Buck, Blue, Pedro, Paquero...Linda Cristal was a marvelous actress who did not get the many further roles that she deserved. My sympathies to her bereft family.

RIP. Loved her with John Wayne in the Alamo and all high chaparral.

Posted by James Cleveland - Sylacauga, AL - acquaintance   June 29, 2020

Loved her on High Chaparral immed! I espec loved it when she & Monolito (char brother) would bicker back/forth, IN SPANISH, when she would scold him for his behavior as a galavanting womanizer who needed to grow up & be responsible. It was so funny, and most times won the argument. It reminded me of home! She was also a loving, gentle person to family, Indians, others in the show that it made it SO lifelike/real; as if it was really true life. She portrayed such a fine char/actress in this show.
Also seen her on Rawhide where she played royalty who had been exhiled and kidnapped by horrid criminals. I wish I couldve seen more of her films/shows but nowadays a lot if what is on TV is garbage; repetitive/unoriginal & you have to pay for shows/movies; all about money. There is SO much out there too!
Wish I could've met her. She seemed like she was the kind spirited loving person in real life. I read up on her Bio as I was hooked on High Chaparral. It was she who made me watch the show b/c u dont see many american tv shows that show our spanish heritage portrayed, in a positive way, like she did. She will be missed by MANY includ me. May she rest in peace. She left behind a great legacy! My condolences to all who were special in her life.
