Trivia

While released in the United States by CBS as a four hour television miniseries, Paramount later had the film re-edited into a two hour feature for theatrical release internationally. See more »

Goofs

Eva Peron never did anything similar to dismantling the Sociedad de Beneficencia and jailing its members. She simply started her own foundation that proved to be more productive than the former organization, which lead to its eventual closure. See more »

Cry for this one, Argentina
24 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As one who has a long-standing interest in the Peron regime, I really looked forward to the release of movie on television. I found it a big disappointment, mostly due to a bad script. It was a pastiche of scenes based on the biographies available at the time, one of which was the notoriously slanted and inaccurate Woman with the Whip. One particularly bad segment showed the Signe Hasso character who had helped Evita as a young actress. When she (Hasso) meets her (Peron) later after she is in power she refuses to take money from her, and gratuitously insults her, ending up in a jail cell. The point of the scene was that Evita was a vindictive woman (she was) who turned on those who had once been her friends (she did), but the scene as presented was pointless and contrived. Another egregious error had Peron running for president against Farrell (he did not - Farrell was his friend). It would be like having a movie about Nixon where he ran for president against Eisenhower. One thing that was interesting is that both Signe Hasso and Jose Ferrer were in the movie, and in the 1950 film Crisis they played a South American dictatorial couple who many thought more than superficially resembled the Perons. Just an interesting (to me) coincidence.
