Publisher Comments:

Heroes, Lovers, and Others tells the fascinating history of Latinos in film, from the birth of the movies to the present, through a series of stories about Hollywood’s most famous and enduring stars. The book features such Latino legends as Dolores del Rio, Rita Hayworth, Ramon Navarro, Desi Arnaz, Anthony Quinn, Raquel Welch, Selma Hayek, and Antonio Banderas. The sparkling parade of Latino film stars presented against the backdrop of American social and cultural history changes the way we think of race and ethnicity in Hollywood and challenges us to reexamine conventional ways of viewing our past.

About the Author

Clara E. Rodríguez is the author of Latin Looks: Images of Latinas and Latinos in U.S. Media and Changing Race: Latinos, the Census, and the History of Ethnicity in the United States. She is a professor of sociology at Fordham University in New York.

Rodriguez delivers a sophisticated and clear analysis of the film and social history of Latinos in Hollywood film. An engaging read written for the broader public, this book presents stories, archived photographs, and compelling arguments about both the important role of Latinos in film and the relationship between film and social change. Representations and roles (e.g. heroes, lovers, and Others) shift with the political, social, and racial shifts within and between the U.S. and Latin America(ns). I would highly recommend this book for anyone interested in film history, Latino history, sociology, or media studies.
