Although she started as a silent film actress, Magaña became best known for her comic supporting roles in her later years.[citation needed] For her 60 years in the film industry, as well as for contributing to the American cinema, Magaña's name and handprint are preserved in the sidewalk outside Mann's Chinese Theater in Hollywood, California.[citation needed]


She made 14 films in the United States and around 240 in her native Mexico. Magaña's first movies were silent films. She later appeared with such film stars as Pedro Infante and Mario Moreno, who went by the screen name of Cantinflas.[citation needed]

Fox Film producer Robert J. Flaherty spotted Magana at the age of twenty. He was in Mexico City working on a motion picture. Among her numerous movies are El Hombre malo (1930), Cascarrabias (1930), Besame mucho (1945), Immaculada (1950), La Nina Popoff (1952), Los chiflados del rock and roll (1957), Satánico pandemonium (1975), Esa mi Raza (1977), and Lagunilla 2 (1983). Her last appearance in films was ¿Y tú... quién eres? (1990).[citation needed]

Miss Magaña was once a guest of honor of a fiesta and dance presented by the United Spanish Speaking Societies. It was held in the Leamington Hotel, San Francisco, on October 27, 1946.[citation needed]


Delia Magaña died of pneumonia in Mexico City on March 31, 1996. She had been admitted sixteen days earlier. She was cremated. Survivors included a niece, Concepción de Teja Magaña.
