During the golden age of cinema, when filmmakers turned actresses into the idols of modern times, a brilliant woman from Mexico emerged, by the name of María Félix. With her sober and proud beauty and bold, larger-than-life persona, she satisfied the masses of fans who flocked to her films, transforming her into a screen goddess rivaling Garbo and Dietrich. But it was her life—both private and public—that provided the richest melodrama. Félix excelled in creating an image of la doña, both forceful and rebellious, and as indestructible as the jewels for which she was legendary.

More Details

Filmmaker, novelist, songwriter, and movie and theater lover, Pierre Philippe's career has taken him down a winding road. He has written lyrics for the Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla, directed major television shows (including Treize journées dans la vie de Pablo Picasso for Arte), and is the author of L'Aire et la chanson, a novel about music-hall life, published by Grasset in 2003. His love for the seventh art inevitably led him to a love for actresses. Both in his writings and for his television shows, he has painted the portraits of Jean Renoir's heroines (Florelle, Catherine Hessling and Sylvia Bataille), of Renée Saint-Cyr, Germaine Montero, Barbara and Ginette Leclerc. Now he prefaces this homage to María Félix. 80 pages, 6 x 8.5"
