Dolores Del Río
Stanford University Press

This chapter describes Dolores' personal and professional life in the 1950s. As available roles for women became less suitable Dolores had to find a way to continue her acting. The Mexican film industry also began to suffer structural problems that led to a move away from the beautiful films of Mexico's Golden Age. In her personal life, the beginning of the decade brought enormous changes that would give her a stability she had not previously known. Her transition to a different kind of life and career took some time, and the process was not always smooth. With an occasional misstep, she nevertheless successfully made the transition from young, romantic roles to those more suitable for her maturity. Fame and recognition in her career and reasonable contentment in her personal life characterized the decade.
