Talented actress and popular music singer Sara Montiel (born Maria Antonia Alejandra Abad Fernández), better known as Sarita Montiel, became one of the first sex symbols from Spain to attract Hollywood’s attention with her captivating performances.

In 1943, Sara Montiel started getting involved in show business after winning a new talent contest sponsored by a local filming company. Her debut came after playing a role in the movie Te Quiero Para Mi, directed by Ladislao Vajda. However, the newcomer’s breakthrough came in 1948 with the successful Locura de Amor. In the early ’50s, Montiel settled in Mexico and began her singing career while working along with Pedro Infante, Manolo Fábregas, and Agustin Lara, among other prominent local artists.
