Sara Montiel has died

Ex beauty, ex actress, ex singer, ex Anthony Mann's wife, absolute star in México and Spain, she worked in Hollywood with Samuel Fuller and Robert Aldrich. Her Mexican films are unknown for me, but she was a star during the late years of the Golden period of Mexican cinema in the 50's.
Sex symbol from the 40's to the 60's for all male Spaniards (even gay). Her films were released in France, Belgium, Italy and Latinoamérica.
Queen of box office in Spain, she left movies in 1970. Her late years she was addicted to Gossip tv shows and magazines, may be she lost all her glorious past with those freak scandals.





Add (12-4-13) : En mi viaje relámpago, ayer fui a las Vistillas a ver la escultura de la violetera en honor a Sara. En varias tiendas vintage y muchas hipster de Madrid tiene fotos, póster y cuadros de ella, no sólo en Casablanca (Calle Bailén, de donde han sacado mucho material). 
Mi ex, que es viejo y mitómano estaba perdidamente enamorado de Sara como todo el mundo de pequeño en esa Eggpaña que retrata La mala educación. Yo, sin ser una de mis divas preferidas, me ha dado muchísima pena, pena de verdad, incrementada por la idea de que su desastroso protagonismo en TV cotilleos y escándalos dañaron mucho su pasado de estrella - mito. Se desmitificó a si misma, pero a lo mejor su muerte significa el renacer de lo bueno y el olvido de todo lo malo.

¿Alguien sabe el nombre de la película MEX en la que una rata se come media cara de Sara? Gracias. Viajo hoy al DF y me gustaría verla.



Yo no creo en los hombres. Title was changed for Spain




























Incluso se estrenó en Yugoslavia 



















































Almodóvar made a tribute in Bad Education 
Sara Montiel was the dream of a nation, the master for gay people. All male population did jerk off watching her. And gay community copied her style, the way she talked, moved, etc.
