Trivia

Goofs

The cities of Junin and Chivilcoy are located in the Pampas, a sprawling flatland located in the center of Argentina, so they wouldn't be surrounded by large mountains and hills as portrayed in the prologue of the film. See more »

Surprising Performance by Farentino
10 March 2012 | by (Queens, NY) – See all my reviews

Yes, many of the clichés about Eva Peron are presented here and certainly there are errors of historical detail.

While Faye Dunnaway overacts, there is a pleasantly restrained interpretation of the role of Juan Peron by a youngish Jim Farentino, who passed away early in 2012. He makes the Colonel seem rather likable: an easygoing, mildly dissolute, somewhat corruptible and none too ambitious army officer in whom the fiercely ambitious Evita saw possibilities.

Juan Peron completely lacked his wife's bitter vindictiveness, also.

In an iconic scene it was Evita who advised him to take off his jacket when addressing a crowd of union workers in Argentina's important meat packing industry, transforming the previously stiff and awkward Colonel to a man of the people and the people to his devoted followers.
