Mexican-American character actor who became known for his roles as Mexican outlaws or Native Americans in Hollywood western films.
After working in Naval Intelligence during World War II, Acosta appeared on stage and in films which eventually led to a bit role in John Ford's 1947 film The Fugitive, directed by Emilio Fernández. Fernandez wrote the role of the pimp Paco for Acosta in the 1949 film Salón México, for which Acosta earned a nomination as Best Supporting Actor at the 1950 Ariel Awards. He then was placed on contract by Universal Studios, beginning with a small role in One Way Street (1950).
Although Acosta was considered a romantic screen idol in Mexico and South America, his burly body and strong features led to a long succession of roles as bandits, Native American warriors and outlaws in American films. In The Tijuana Story (1957), he had a sympathetic leading role, but in general he spent his career as a familiar western antagonist.
He died on 7 November 1974, aged 54, in Woodland Hills, California.
