Dolores Del Rio?

Chiquita Banana actress? Forget who that was modeled after Carmen Miranda maybe?

Dolores del Río was a Mexican actress of film, television, and theater. With a career spanning more than 50 years, she is regarded as the first major female Latin American crossover star in Hollywood, with an outstanding career in American films in the 1920s and 1930s. Wikipedi

del Rio was married to Orson Welles.

Her first hubby was an art dealer named Cedric Gibbons(worked for studios too)

Cedric Gibbons wasn't an "art dealer". He's the guy who won the most Oscars in history (and he even designed the trophy). As the head of art direction at MGM, he was automatically credited for any of their films. If you see any old movie by MGM, his name is there.

Lupe' Velez was a very early Mexican crossover. Lived a wild life and committed suicide - Dated Gary Cooper, Johnny Weismuller, etc.

So many tangled webs in Old Hollywood!
Angela- Cool extra bit about Cedric Gibbons designing Oscar!

Dolores Del Rio was the main lady and very beautiful. Lupe was too crazy for Hwood. Carmen Miranda was a dance and song lady from Brazil.

My grandfather had a portrait book of all the major stars from Mary Pickford to Liz as a young lady. And Oscar winners too. Really beautiful pictures from what I remember.

Dolores Del Rio. One of the great early Hollywood beauties.

MissDavie said...

It would have been Dolores' first husband, Mexican socialite Jaime Del Rio. She got a great name out of the marriage.

Zeroh Tollrants said...

Yeah, not Lupe Velez, thought that's a great guess. Gotta be DDR.

Parade said...

Rita Moreno is the actress.

CarolMR said...

I don't think Dolores was married to Orson Welles.

Sd Auntie said...

Ramon Navarro

Sd Auntie said...

Man that Orson Welles bagged some nice ladys. His life story should be called "Aliens and Booty"

Unknown said...
