Fame and Its Perils

Dolores Del Río
Stanford University Press

This chapter discusses the life and career of Dolores from 1929 to 1930. Her association with United Artists in two major films, Ramona and Evangeline, brought her to the pinnacle of stardom. They were the last that she made with Edwin Carewe. She was finally able to break away from Carewe at the behest of her new studio, leading to personal discomfort and two lawsuits, which, though not brought by Carewe himself, were almost certainly encouraged by him. The suits seemed deliberately designed to destroy the reputation she and Jaime had guarded so jealously since their arrival in Hollywood. Before the end of 1930, she remarried; her new husband, Cedric Gibbons, was one of the most important and talented men in Hollywood. Then she was struck with a mysterious and devastating illness, and her career, always dependent on her physical well-being and beauty, took a nosedive.
