Mexican film legend Columba Dominguez dies at 85

PanARMENIAN.Net - Mexican actress Columba Dominguez, who worked with director Luis Bunuel during Mexico's golden age of cinema, died at 85 on Wednesday, August 13 of unknown causes, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Dominguez, recipient of a lifetime achievement award at Mexico's Ariel Awards ceremony last year, appeared in more than 60 films and TV series throughout a career that spanned six decades. She is best known for the lead role in the Bunuel drama The River and Death and for Pueblerina, a romantic drama from renowned writer-director Emilio Fernandez.

Dominguez's nephew Giuliano Molina, who made the announcement of the death via Twitter, posted a picture Wednesday of his aunt and Fernandez having drinks with Marilyn Monroe.

Dominguez was a second cousin of Babel screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga.

The film academy here said in a statement that Mexican cinema has lost one of its great icons.
