DOLORES DEL RÍO ca. Vintage original 8 x 10 20 x 25 cm. Black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Hollywood’s first Mexican female star. Born in aristocracy in Durango, her family lost their fortune in 1916 and Dolores married socialite Jaime Martinez del Río. The couple moved to Hollywood after becoming friends with director Edwin Carewe, who Dolores would work for. At the time of this film, del Río divorced and soon married MGM production designer Cedric Gibbons, with whom she lived an elegant lifestyle as she continued her acting career into the 1940s. She would appear in film into the 1960s. This portrait of del Río, don by Chidnoff, N. And with the Joseph M. Schenk company ink stamp on the verso, is likely for the period in which she appeared in two Fox films under the direction of Raoul Walsh — What Price Glory? And The Loves of Carmen. A lovely portrait of del Río wearing a contemporary gown and head pieces. Minor tiny tear at mid-right side blank white margin and small crease to bottom right corner. Light crease at bottom left corner has been reinforced with archival tape, ABOUT FINE. It must come back in the same condition as it was sent. AUTHENTICATION: My name is Walter Reuben.
