Photo Getty. This type of exposure on the most viewed page of the internet naturally inspires lots of stories about the subject. I dove into several. Not one of the pieces covering her life mentioned the jewelry at all. To me this would be like writing about Elizabeth Taylor and leaving the jewelry off. What exactly the meaning was remains shrouded in a bit of mystery and myth. She did, however, learn French and appeared in a handful of French films.

A cultural icon, beautiful in her prime, yielding a charming yet rebellious attitude, the actress is dearly remembered and beloved, as shown in the museum dedicated to her in Alamos, Sonora. Maria Felix was born on April 8th, , in Alamos. Her father was a man named Bernardo Felix, a military commander and politician, and the result of a mix between Yaqui and Spanish parents. Perhaps one of the very first incarnations of this particular heritage combination, Maria grew like a rare flower in the desert landscapes of Sonora, before moving to Guadalajara at age Her beauty began turning heads and, after a failed marriage at a very young age, she decided to move to Mexico City to try her luck as an actress. As is evident through the screen, Maria had a magnetic personality.
Mexican star Maria Felix rode again Wednesday in a Paris haute couture fashion show tribute to the flamboyant screen diva. French designer Franck Sorbier brought two horses onto the catwalk in a head-turning show inspired by the late legend that also featured musicians and equestrian tricks. Felix, who starred in 47 films including Luis Bunuel's "Republic of Sin", was brought up on a ranch in Alamos, northern Mexico, and had a life-long passion for horses.
A leading light of the so-called Golden Age of Mexican cinema, in the s and 50s, Felix was the incarnation of the strong, sexual woman who would ultimately be tamed by a man by the end of a movie. Felix was one of 16 children, born in the town of Alamos. She went to study in Guadalajara before moving to Mexico City , where she initially worked as a model for a plastic surgeon who used her to attract clients. But it was her third movie, Dona Barbera, which turned her into a national star. She was also frequently in the news for events outside her film career. Felix married four times and had a number of love affairs throughout her life. Famous artists, including Jean Cocteau and Diego Rivera , painted her and she inspired a number of writers, including Carlos Fuentes. Felix spent her later years travelling between Paris, where she owned a racehorse stable and Mexico City. Already have an account?
