Vasco Leitão, estudante de medicina, sobrevive na capital à custa da mesada das tias de Trás-os-Montes, que nunca vieram a Lisboa e o consideram um aluno exemplar. Todavia, o alegre estudante prefere às aulas os retiros e os arraiais, as cantigas populares e as mulheres bonitas. Written by

I discovered the movie a few weeks ago via Utube. I was doing some searching about Beatriz Costa and her career.
I saw the movie a few times and a got interested in a an almost unknown actress whose name is "ANA MARIA".
I tried finding information on the net about her, a biography but a did not find anything but the list of her movies in IMDb and other databases such as Hollywood.com. She appears for about 6 minutes in the movie A Cançao de Lisboa. In her role of "Ana da Garcia", she is the girlfriend of Carlos, interpreted by Manoel de Oliveira.
She seems to have played in 8 movies according to IMDb and to 11 movies according to Hollywood.com. Both database agree about 8.
However, according to pborgesalmeida in Utube, she was involved in only one movie and the information about her was lost due to lack of activity and length of time.
In the Portuguese cinema magazine Cinefilo dated 12 august 1933 a short article presents Ana Maria as an actress in her first role.
Also the cinema revistas magazine Imagem No 84,june 1933, and No 98, feb. 1934, are almost totally devoted to the movie Cançao de Lisboa.
So i am trying to find who is telling the true story about ANA MARIA. I have a strong feeling that the IMDb and other data bases may contains a few errors or omissions but in this case the errors too many.
I suspect that her name being unspecific creates identification problems and a source of confusion. I also consider that important information about actors, such as real name, date of birth, career, etc should be preserved even if they had only secondary roles and that even they were unknown to the general public.
I wish to solve the problem raised by the identity of ANA MARIA: How many films and roles she played during her career in addition to any relevant information about her as an actress and a person.
One may say that this problem is not important because the actress is not very known or and popular person. I want also to write a very short biography of her in indicating her real name, village or city of origin, date of birth, career and professions, etc.
If you have any information about this actress and person, her career and life, please let me know. I contacted many people and official organisations about her. There is no information available from them.
Thanks a lot
