Me too. Last Monday, Mexico also lost a great person. A mexican actress named Maria Felix. She was 88 years old. She is referred to as the Mexican Marylin Monroe.
FÃ©lix, MarÃ:censor:a (1911 or '14?--): One of the great personalities of Mexican cinema, MarÃ:censor:a de los Angeles FÃ©lix was born in Sonora, one of 16 children (12 surviving infancy). The family later moved to Guadalajara; while they were living there, MarÃ:censor:a met and married Enrique Alvarez, at the time a traveling salesman for Max Factor cosmetics. FÃ©lix and Alvarez had a son, future actor Enrique Alvarez FÃ©lix, but the marriage soon broke up. FÃ©lix traveled to Mexico City, where she was "discovered" by Fernando Palacios. She made her film debut opposite Jorge Negrete in 1941's El peÃ±on de las Ã¡nimas. Over the next 29 years, FÃ©lix was one of the top stars of Mexican cinema. After she starred in the title role of DoÃ±a BÃ¡rbara (1943), FÃ©lix was nicknamed "La DoÃ±a," a sobriquet she carries to this day. She took home three Best Actress Arieles--for Enamorada (1947), RÃ:censor:o Escondido (1949), DoÃ±a Diabla (1951)--and was nominated for El monje blanco (1946) and Camelia (1955). FÃ©lix also made a fair number of films in Europe during the late 1940s and 1950s. Her last film was La generala (1970), after which she retired from the screen, although she remains a conspicuous public figure, spending most of her time in Paris. In addition to Enrique Alvarez, MarÃ:censor:a FÃ©lix's husbands included composer AgustÃ:censor:n Lara and actor Jorge Negrete.
She was a beautiful woman who at 88 years old didn't look her age. She will be forever missed! Couldn't find a current picture of her but here is one.
