Sara Montiel: From One Secret to the Next, My Life Uncovered (Sara Montiel: Secreto a secreto, mi vida al descubierto)

The unseen side of the diva from La Mancha (Spain) who conquered Hollywood.

Diva in film and music, the queen of kitsch, a woman of overwhelming personality and heart-stopping beauty, and capacity for self-parody, Sara Montiel was the great icon of 20th century Spain. Ernest Hemingway taught her to smoke cigars, she married Anthony Mann, flirted with Gary Cooper… If there was an international erotic and sexual myth, it was this actress and singer from La Mancha (Spain). A free woman, ahead of her time, who lived among glamour, legend and excesses.

She refused Franco’s invitations to sing at his parties; she went to prisons on several occasions to ask for the liberation of homosexuals and never let herself be subdued by men. She had an enormous entourage of desirable suitors at her feet. She went to the Americas to mingle with the great American stars, fell in love with Spain, Hollywood, Mexico, three husbands and many other lovers.


RELEVANT DATA: A collection of interviews with Sara Montiel’s closest friends, who gave an unpublished testimony and drew the human, intellectual, artistic, intimate and sentimental figure of the star.
