DOLORES DEL RIO- SILENT FIM STAR.
Dolores del Río a Mexican film actress. She was a star of Hollywood films during the silent era and in the Golden Age of Hollywood. She was thought to be one of the most beautiful actresses of her era and was the first Latin American movie star to have international appeal. With the arrival of the talkies she was considered one of the principal Art Deco symbols of beauty. Dolores del Río's appearance influenced Joan Crawford. In 1930, when Crawford emerged as beauty personified in the entire world, but especially in Hollywood, the women imitated her style of dress and make-up. Gone was the style of heavy pancake and little heart shaped mouths. In its place the angular face, the sculptures look came into vogue.
