(p.176) 8 Affair
Dolores Del Río
Stanford University Press

This chapter focuses on Dolores' personal and professional life in the late 1930s. For Dolores, the last years of the 1930s in Hollywood were marred by problems in her marriage and a marked decline in her popularity. The end of the decade saw her engage in a brief affair with Orson Welles, which had both personal and professional consequences. In 1942, she returned to Mexico and retained it as a base for the rest of her life, although she maintained residences in the United States and continued to travel extensively.

Keywords:   Dolores del Río, popularity, marriage, Orson Welles
