For my money, Sara Montiel has always been the quintessential movie star... Her mesmerizing beauty and charisma were made for the cameras...She is Garbo, Dietrich, West and Loren all rolled up into one-bigger-than-life film actress and singer... Whoever saw her on the screen has never forgotten her...
So much for her immense film appeal...In this book Miss Montiel bares her soul and takes us along into the unchartered territory that has been her life. Born extremelly poor in La Mancha, her desire for beauty, glamour and success seemed condemmed to remain "the impossible dream" forever... However, through discipline, determination, talent and a little luck, the young woman rises from her humble beginnings and becomes a successful working actress that went from Spanish & Mexican films into the mythical world of Hollywood, sharing top billing with the likes of Gary Cooper, Burt Lancaster, Rod Steiger, Vincent Price, etc. Later she would make several films in Europe that turned her into an international sensation sealing her destiny as one of the most powerful film stars of all time... It was not easy...Montiel had to fight against all odds to reach that status and then to maintain herself on top of the heap for the past 40 years... The whole experience is told in her no-nonsense style and, of course, Montiel give us here a detailed account of all her husbands, lovers and platonic admirers...her triumphs and her failures...the world she lived and her remarkable capacity to rise in spite of everything... This book is simply delightful...
