Sara Montiel (also Sarita Montiel or Saritísima) (born March 10, 1928) 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 Castile-La Mancha in 1928 as María Antonia Abad. After her unprecedented international hit in Juan de Orduña's El Último Cuplé in 1957, Miss 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. With the passage of time the title of "legend" has been awarded to her mythological cache. In legend she seems to thrive; growing stronger and even more famous. She is very much admired internationally today.
She was recently portrayed in the Pedro Almodóvar film Bad Education by Gael García Bernal as the character Zahara and a film clip from one of her movies was used as well. 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 Peking 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 50s and 60s. She also played the role of Antonia, the niece of Don Quixote, in the 1947 Spanish film version of Cervantes's great novel.
