Darrow was “best known as Manolito Montoya in the hit Western The High Chaparral,” but he was also “an activist who worked to expand the roles offered to Latinos on screen. In 1972, Darrow, Ricardo Montalban, Carmen Zapata and Edith Diaz founded the Screen Actors Guild Ethnic Minority Committee. Darrow was also a vice president of Nostros, the organization founded by Montalban to help Latino actors be cast in non-stereotypical roles.” – Los Angeles Times
