Mapy Cort?s (March 1, 1910 – August 2, 1998), born Maria del Pilar Cordero in Santurce, Puerto Rico, was an actress who participated in many films during the Mexican film industrys golden era. Contrary to popular belief, Cort?s was not Mexican, she was Puerto Rican, but she adopted Mexico as her residential country from her youth and almost until she died.
Biography,Mapy Cortes began experimenting as an actress since an early age, working in Puerto Rican amateur theater. In the early 1930s, Mapy traveled to New York City, where she married childhood friend Fernando Papi Cortes. Under contract to a theatrical troupe headlined by Dominican baritone Eduardo Brito, the couple traveled to Spain. After the company disbanded, the couple began performing in different teatro de revista companies, primarily in Barcelona. On 1933, Mapy Cortes made her film debut as one of the two female leads in the comedy Dos Mujeres y un Don Juan (Two Women and a don Juan). By that time Cortes had a nephew, Paquito Cordero, who would become a famed actor and producer in Puerto Rico.After the start of the Spanish Civil War, Mapy and Fernando Cortes went to Marseilles before making their way down to Argentina. Following stops in Buenos Aires and Havana, where they appeared on stage and movies, the couple traveled to Mexico City. They made their stage debut as part of the Cantinflas revue and soon joined the growing Mexican film industry, which lacked established female stars. Back-to-back starring roles in three hit films – the Pan-American musical La liga de las canciones / The League of Songs (Chano Urueta, 1941), the nostalgia musical comedy ?Ay, que tiempos, senor don Simon! / Oh, What Times, Don Simon! (Julio Bracho, 1941) and the Cantinflas comedy El gendarme desconocido / The Unknown Policeman (Miguel M. Delgado, 1941) – quickly turned Mapy Cortes into one of the most bankable leading ladies in Mexican cinema. In 1942, Cortes made her only foray into Hollywood cinema, playing a singer in the 1942 RKO wartime musical comedy Seven Days Leave. Her eponymous character is engaged to Victor Matures soldier character before he falls in love with a socialite played by Lucille Ball.After filming ended, Mapy Cortes returned to fulfill multiple engagements in Mexico, playing top-billed roles in musical comedies. In 1945, the Mapy Cortes vehicle La picara Susana / Mischievous Susana (1945) marked the directorial debut of her husband Fernando, who remained very active as a comedy director in Mexican film and TV, directing vehicles for popular Mexican comedians like Tin-Tan, Resortes, and la India Maria.While Fernando remained in demand as director until his death, Mapys film career waned in the 1950s. The couple received an invitation from Angel Ramos, owner of El Mundo Enterprises, to work on the first television transmission of WKAQ-TV Telemundo Channel 2. On March 28, 1954, Puerto Rico received its first television transmission from Telemundo: a live broadcast of the Spanish comedy El caso de la mujer asesinadita, starring Mapy and directed by Fernando. The couple also starred in the stations first comedy show Mapy y Papi, an adaptation of the I Love Lucy format that also featured Maria Judith Franco and Mapys nephew Paquito Cordero. After the show came off the air in Puerto Rico, the couple returned to Mexico City, where they starred in a Mexican version of Mapy y Papi.Her niece Mapita Cortes, Miss Puerto Rico 1957, lived with them in Mexico City and briefly joined the Mexican film industry in the late 1950s. After an eight-year absence, Mapy Cortes made a brief return to Mexican cinema with a supporting role in the comedy Dormitorio para senoritas / Girls Dormitory (1959), a loose remake of her 1943 hit Internado para senoritas / Girls Dormitory (1943), starring Mapita and directed by husband Fernando. However, Mapita retired after her marriage to popular Chilean crooner Lucho Gatica. By the 1960s, Mapy was working mostly on the Mexico City stage, including roles in comedies by Spanish author Alfonso Paso. Her last film appearances were playing supporting roles in three Puerto Rican/Mexican co-productions, filmed in Puerto Rico, directed by her husband, and produced by her nephew Paquito.After Fernando Cortes died, Mapy Cortes returned to Puerto Rico and led a relatively quiet life. She died at her home in 1998, of a heart attack.
