Cortés, Mapy

(María del Pilar Cordero)
(1919? or 1913? or 1910?-1998)
   Cute and perky Puerto Rican musical comedy actress, married to director/comic actor Fernando Cortés. Mapy was on screen as early as 1933 (in the Spanish film Dos mujeres y un Don Juan - Two Women and One Don Juan). Over the next few years the couple made the rounds of the Spanish-speaking world, making films in Argentina and Cuba (separately and together), before arriving in Mexico in 1940, where Mapy made her debut in a supporting role in Papá se desenreda (Dad Gets Out of Trouble). Although very popular in the 1940s in musicals like La pícara Susana (The Mischievous Susana, 1944) and La corte del faraón (The Court of Pharaoh, 1943), Mapy was virtually retired from the screen by the early '50s, although she did appear in a few movies shot in Puerto Rico by her husband. They also appeared together in a Puerto Rican TV sitcom in the mid-1950s. Fernando Cortés died in 1982; Mapy Cortés died on 2 August 1998 of a heart attack at her home in Puerto Rico.
