Editorial Reviews

Criticas
Hispanics in Hollywood have enjoyed a long history but, unfortunately, have too often been stereotyped and left off the mainstream radar. Reyes, a veteran film and television publicist, and Rubie, an author and editor, shed some light on Hollywood's ongoing Latin obsession by presenting some some 400 films and television shows from the 1930s to 2002 featuring a Hispanic lead or supporting character. Often, the selections feel a tad stretched because the actor's role is minimal, but even these hold historical significance. Entries like The Mark of Zorro and The Perez Family are found alongside such unexpected listings as Raiders of the Lost Ark and Against All Odds, chosen for their exoticized Latin American settings. The book also includes an informative 42-page introduction to the different eras of Hispanic cinema, ranging from the Good Neighbor Policy productions to the characterization of Hispanics as bandidos, or spitfires, to the more modern independent films spearheaded by Chicano directors and actors. Hollywood buffs will also enjoy flipping through the alphabetized section of actor entries and finding such Latino household names as Antonio Banderas and Jennifer Lopez. Actors such as Lynda Carter, Martin Sheen, and Cameron Diaz, who are often not perceived as Latino, can also be seen in a whole new light. Although the book lacks an index, it's still easy to navigate. This updated and improved translation has added new titles, updated entries, and has corrected some of the typos in the original English-language version. Highly recommend for all bookstores and libraries with an entertainment section.
