Happy Birthday to Dolores del Rio, Hollywood Star

August 3, 1905 is the birthday of Dolores del Rio, born in Durango, Mexico.  Known as the female Valentino (or should we say that Valentino was the male Del Rio?), Del Rio was the queen of Hollywood nights, starring in more than 50 films.  A world traveler who learned several languages, Del Rio spent her many years in Hollywood in roles as – guess what for a gorgeous Latina? — a femme fatale.  After her career waned in the US, she returned to Mexico to inspire the golden age of Mexican cinema.  Not content with these accomplishments, she achieved true human glory for her work with orphans.
