First movie of cult 60's screen starlet Soledad Miranda
This musical comedy was cult starlet Soledad Miranda's first movie. The film is suprisingly similar to Moulin Rouge in its look, characters, and plot. We are in Madrid in 1914, where the most popular cabaret is the one ruled by the beautiful and shameless Mimí (Queta Claver), who has many suitors vying for her affection. When Mimí hears that there's a police agent (Herato, played by Jaime Avellán) determined to stamp out corruption, she plans on seducing him, disguising herself by acting and dressing like a proper lady. What follows is their romance. Soledad Miranda plays the lead dancer in the opening number and in all the other musical numbers in the movie. She has quite a bit of screen time for her first movie, mostly dancing, her talent in which surely led her to get this role. Quite interestingly, Soledad later appeared with fellow actors Antonio Garisa in Cuatro bodas y pico, Diana Lorys in Les cauchemars naissent la nuit and Sex Charade, and worked with director Elorrieta in Canción de cuna
