The Girls of Steve Canyon - Part 3

(click on images to enlarge)
Dean Fredericks/Elena VerdugoPhoto #9220-53 - Col. Steve Canyon (Dean Fredericks) is greeted by Captain Maggie Gallagher (Elena Verdugo) on his return to Big Thunder from Okinawa in the STEVE CANYON episode, "OPERATION SOUVENIR."

Yep, it's Elena Verdugo this time, years before her unforgettable stint as Consuelo Lopez, Marcus Welby's altruistic assistant, and years after playing countless ethnic character parts such as the gypsy girl Ilonka in House of Frankenstein (1944). In this episode she plays a bit of a love interest to Steve, then things go bad with smugglers who put the kibosh on their little party.

And another interesting thing, for those who say Steve is the only strip character (other than General "Shanty" Towne in the pilot), we give you the following panel (from "Steve Canyon" - Dell Four Color comic #1033 Sept. 1959) for your consideration:
