Rio Crossing

On this day in 1936 Dolores del Rio was aboard the RMS Queen Mary on her way to New York. Del Rio had been a major star in the 1920s, until the advent of talking pictures. In 1943, she would again become a huge hit, this time in Mexico where she had been born to a wealthy family 37 years earlier. She is shown here with her pooch just before departing England.
