The popularity of Mexican cinema in Latin America from the 1930s to the 1950s was second only to Hollywood's. Legendary figures such as Dolores del Rio, Maria Felix, Pedro Infante, Tito Guizar, and Cantinflas emerged as idols in movies like Las Abandonadas, Pepe el Toro, Alla en el Rancho Grande, and Aguila o sol. Cine Mexicano is one of the first books to offer an in-depth look at poster art from this seductive era. It features more than 150 posters drawn from the Agrasanchez Film Archive, the largest print collection of its kind. A bilingual introduction by Charles Ramirez Berg chronicles the rise and fall of Mexican film during the Golden Age and examines the important role that these posters played in Mexico's rich cinematic and artistic past. Whether you appreciate the posters on their own or are inspired to seek out and experience the films they tout, Cine Mexicano will lead you into an exotic world that you won't soon forget.
