Goodnight Oppo

All day I’ve been thinking of Esmarelda Villalobos, the lovely and mysterious cab driver who picked up boxer Butch Coolidge in Pulp Fiction.

The damn film is almost 25 y.o., but I never bothered to look up the actor’s name.


Her name is Angela Jones.

Her ethnic background should be of no surprise since Hollywood was a different animal back then. But as the saying goes, there are no small roles. And she nailed it!!!

Speaking of surprises, I always love how everyone learned their favorite space marine of the ‘80's, Pvt. Vasquez, was legendary character actor (and frequently in James Cameron films), Jeanette Goldstein.


I still would love to go on a date with Pvt. Vasquez.

No small roles.
