Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally

Sara Montiel

Here is a great song by legendary singer Sara Montiel.
Sara Montiel (also Sarita Montiel or Saritísima) (1928 - 2013) is a Spanish singer, and actress. She is still a much-loved and internationally known name in the Spanish-speaking movie and music industries. She was born in Campo de Criptana in the region of New Castile in 1928 as María Antonia Alejandra Vicenta Elpidia Isidora Abad Fernández. After her unprecedented international hit in Juan de Orduña's "El Último Cuplé" in 1957, Montiel achieved the status of mega-star in Europe and Latin America. She was the first woman to distill sex openly in Spanish cinema at a time when even a low cut dress was not acceptable. Montiel was the most commercially successful Spanish actress during the mid twentieth century in much of the world. Miss Montiel's film "Varietes" was banned in Beijing in 1973. Her films "El Último Cuple" and "La Violetera" netted the highest gross revenues ever recorded for films made in the Spanish speaking movie industry during the 50's and 60's. She also played the role of Antonia, the niece of Don Quixote, in the 1947 Spanish film version of Cervantes's great novel. In 1974 Montiel announced her retirement from movies but continued performing live, recording and starring on her own variety television shows in Spain. She kept on at that pace well into the 1990's. In 2000 her autobiography "Memories: To Live Is A Pleasure" became a huge best seller, followed by a second part "Sara and Sex", which highlighted her love life.
Enjoy beautiful Sara's great style!
