South of the [Diva] Border

Still on the road, darlings, but I thought you might enjoy this quite extraordinary tribute to the tempestuous goddess of Mexican film, the late, great María Félix . She runs through the whole canon of temperament in just five minutes - languishing, sulking, slapping, smoking, Making Entrances, and, especially, holding for that lingering close-up.

Special bonus points to anyone who can tell me what the truly demented music is (it sounds like a disco remix of the Prospero's Books score sung by Klaus Nomi, but surely that's too good to be true).


  1. DIVA!!! Qhe bonita.

    And for the singer...Imperia!

  2. It did sound rather Nomi-esque, even the part that sounded like Devo had taken the controls over.
