A Salute to María Félix

Maria Felix

On International Women’s Day, María Félix aka La Doña came to mind.

Not only is she the most recognized face from the Golden Age of Mexican cinema, but she was a trailblazer, pursuing her career aspirations despite cultural norms of the times.

She starred in a total of 52 films and only played roles that embodied who she really was – a strong, cut-throat femme fatale. Félix turned down anything that fell short of those standards.

Here’s a short clip of Félix as Angela in Doña Diabla, a 1950’s Mexican drama.
