Last July, it was announced that the actress from “The Fallen Angel” (1949) had been admitted to the hospital in Mexico City due to a complication that she experienced with a tumor that appeared in the thyroid.
Until now, the causes of the death of the iconic actress were not confirmed, but social networks were soon filled with messages of encouragement to the family and Quintana’s work was praised.
”The Mexican Film Academy mourns the death of the first actress Rosita Quintana. In 2016 he received the Ariel de Oro in recognition of his long career in Mexican cinema. It will live in our filmic memory ”, the AMACC wrote on Twitter.
Born in Buenos Aires in 1925, Quintana began her career at age 15 as a vocalist in the Caro brothers’ orchestra. Her work as a singer was on the rise when the Mexican actor Jorge Negrete met her talent in Argentina and invited her to Mexico to be part of “El Patio”, popular nightclub of the time in 1947.
Her success was such that she decided to stay in the country and a year later she began her film career under the direction of Chano Urueta in “La santa del barrio”.
Part of the most recognized works of the actress, were those carried out with the actor Germán Valdés “Tin Tán”, with her performance in films such as “Tender squash”, “I am a charro from Levita” and “Do not defend me compadre” all from 1949.
Another of her most emblematic works was the film she made with Spanish director Luis Buñuel, “Susana (carne and demonio)” from 1951, in which she played a woman who gets into trouble for her sensuality.
Quintana was one of the essential figures of the golden age of cinema in Mexico and worked with great personalities such as the stars Pedro Infante and Luis Aguilar, as well as actors such as Joaquín Pardavé and Fernando Soler, among others.
In addition to her work in the cinema, Quintana also forged a career in television with appearances in soap operas such as “La intrusa” (1987) or “La dueña” (1995), among many others.
Despite all the success she had on the big and small screen, Quintana never gave up her talent as a singer and songwriter and signed several contracts with various companies.
