(p.225) 10 Resurrection
Dolores Del Río
Stanford University Press

This chapter discusses the resurgence of Dolores' film career. The enormous success of her first two films after returning to Mexico reestablished her claim to a Mexican identity and proved that she still had an admiring and paying public in her home country, in the United States, and in Europe and Latin America. Dolores' film career continued to thrive for seventeen more years. From 1944 through 1960, she made sixteen Mexican films, one Mexican–Spanish co-production, and two U.S. productions. In many ways, for her, these years may have been the most satisfying in terms of pace, quality, and her own control over her artistic production. Certainly, considering critical reception, awards, and honors, this creative period was extraordinary. At the same time, she continued the interest in the arts and literature that characterized her return to Mexico from its earliest day.
