Tracking Latina Bloodlines
This chapter discusses the concept of the “fantasy heritage” and traces the different Latinas in the movie industry. It includes descriptions of the early silent film stars and shows how the Latino/Latina film historiography has disrupted the Eurocentric bias of mainstream film history. One of the most popular Latinas in film, Lupe Vélez, is discussed. It explores the model of a modern “new woman” and studies the meaning of Lupe Vélez's embodied otherness.
