"...and they aren't happy!"

Talk about self-serving - Rita was not the first Latina actress in Hollywood as the list above shows. Dolores Del Rio was a ravishingly beautiful, dignified leading lady in silent and talking films. Lupe Velez and Carmen Miranda were comediennes who played stereotypes but were very loved.

Also there were the stars of the Mexican cinema like Maria Felix, Sarita Montiel and Carmen Sevilla.

Carmen Miranda should come back from the beyond and hit her with a giant banana.
