Dolores Del Rio was a great actress. She was a dark haired beauty. She remained beautiful all of her life. it`s too bad her American movie roles weren`t handled better.She was recognized and honored in her native country, Mexico.Her facial were outstanding.She looked like she was a beautiful statue come to life. She was one of a kind.
