Dolores del Río was the first major Latin cross-over star in Hollywood, and was considered by critics and film historians, one of the most beautiful faces that have emerged in the Hollywood cinema. With the passage of time, and even after her death, her physical characteristics and her lead role and influence as a Latin American female figure in the international cinema, have made her into an object of veneration in the cultural, artistic and cinematographic circles of Mexico and other countries.
