In the long history of Mexican cinema, the 1960s stood out as the only decade in which the industry actively sought out foreign, non-Latin performers.

I appeared in 23 Mexican features in three years; generally casting as gringa, stereotyped as sexy outsiders.
I myself, Amedee Chabot (I was frequently billed as "Amadee Chabot" or "Amedée Chabot" in Mexico) was born in Chicago in the year 1945. Sometime later, I moved to Northridge, California, and in 1962 was chosen "Miss California." I participated in the "Miss U.S.A." contest and on the 22nd of September 1962 I won the crown in Huntington, Virginia. I later went on to represent the United States in the "Miss World" contest that year in London and made it to the finals of that competition, held in November.
Later in 1962, I was part of Bob Hope's annual Christmas tour of military bases, visiting Japan, Korea, Okinawa, Taiwan, the Philippines, and Guam. I was with many other people on the tour such as Lana Turner, Janis Paige, Anita Bryant, and Hope stalwarts Jerry Colonna and the Les Brown Band of Renown.

My first Mexican film was shot in May 1966, the Santo-Jorge Rivero spy adventure "El Tesoro de Moctezuma" in which she had the female lead as Rivero's love interest, an Interpol agent. Ironically, Elizabeth Campbell had been featured in "Operación 67", which "Tesoro" was a sequel to. "Bañame mi Amor", shot in the later summer of 1966, teamed Chabot with the Texas-born Emily Cranz, an actress, and dancer who had been working in Mexico for a number of years. Amedee's final film of 1966 was" Autopsia de un Fantasma", which starred three former Hollywood "names": Basil Rathbone (his last film), John Carradine, and Cameron Mitchell.

What brought me to Mexico? At this point, I don't know. However, it was undoubtedly a good career move for me. After playing bit roles in routine Hollywood pictures, I was given substantial parts in Mexico, and work was plentiful: I acted in 10 features in 1967 and 10 more in 1968, even though my dialogue was virtually always dubbed. [In Operación Carambola my real voice can be heard in one scene; otherwise, although in many of my pictures I seem to have been speaking my lines in Spanish during filming--based on the movements of my lips--my voice was over-dubbed by others]
The Mexican movies I starred in were mostly comedies, with a number of action films and Westerns in the mix. Her most "serious" picture was "Narda o el Verano", basically a three-person drama with Chabot as the romantic interest for Enrique Alvarez Félix and Héctor Bonilla.
