Elis first appeared on the entertainment radar in the 1991 made-for-American television, yet Spanish language movie La Pastorela, which starred all of our country’s biggest Spanish speaking stars, including Linda Ronstadt, Cheech Marin, and of course, in the role of “Satanas,” Paul Rodriguez. However, Elis was remanded to the bit part of “Angel,” which doesn’t amount to much in a Christmas show. She then took a few years off, reappearing in 1997’s This World, Then the Fireworks, which happened to catch Elis without her clothes on. In it, she plays “The Neighbor’s Wife,” which places her firmly in the ranks of gratuitously naked characters in film. Her nude scene is rather brief, though, but it is one of the few saving graces of an otherwise unbearable movie.
