Trivia

Rita Moreno's character of Renata Riguel is based on the famous Argentine actress/singer Libertad Lamarque, who was rumored to have been at war with the real Eva Perón back when the latter pursued an acting career in the early to mid 1940s. Lamarque later went into self-imposed exile in Mexico after Eva became the First Lady of Argentina in 1945. See more »

Goofs

The real Agustin Magaldi died when he was only 39, so he would be only in his mid-thirties when the story takes place. He also toured with his own guitar and never had a back-up band and tacky background dancers. See more »

Dunaway once again as a hard-as-nails woman
4 September 2000 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

Made for TV movie about the life and death of Argentina's first lady, Eva Peron and her husband Colonel Juan Peron. Dunaway does a fairly good job in the title role, but one can clearly see she overreacts (very similiar to how she does in Mommie Dearest) in many of the important scenes.
