Can be said that she is perfectly adequate to his measure . Marisol was an appealing Spanish actress and singer . Spanish film studios were looking for a new child star to follow the steps of Pablito Calvo, and make popular and populist folkloric movies and they found Marisol . She was discovered by her future producer Manuel J. Goyanes in an exhibition of the "Coros y Danzas de Málaga" in TVE in 1959 . Her debut in cinema was in 1960 and she complemented her activity in cinema with records , recitals and TV-shows . Most of them were produced by Manuel J Goyanes , in fact , she was introduced to the movie business and discovered by this powerful producer in ¨Un Rayo De Luz¨ (1960) by Luis Lucia , who directed her in this first feature , where earned his famous name . He was widely known in Spain when she became a widely successful child star , following ¨Ha Llegado Un Angel¨, ¨Tombola¨, ¨Marisol Rumbo a Rio¨ which were big box-office hits in Spain during Franco's dictatorship , and she became Spain's most famous girl actress , outstanding his highly expressive face and eyes , charming eyes and innocent , angelical face . She was a milestone in Spanish "child prodigies" under Franco along with Joselito , Pili and Mili , Ana Belén and especially Pablito Calvo . And the producers trying to keep them as little kids for as long as possible . Due to false advertising by the studios that made their movies, and which wanted to make them appear younger than they really were , an obsession that haunted them through the whole of their careers . After the national and international hits as ¨La Nueva Cenicienta¨ , ¨La Historia De Bienvenido¨ and ¨Cabriola¨, and following other successful films as ¨4 Bodas Marisol¨, ¨Carola De Dia , Carola De Noche¨ . In some films Marisol was already a teenager, and looked more like a young woman than like a little girl . So, the producers decided to compress her breasts with a bandage under her clothes to make her look younger . In her films she often sings Flamenco Cante , Saetas , Soleadas , Bulerias , Habaneras and other Folkloric songs . After several movies and records , and already a big star as a singer and an actress in Europe, the next move was trying to triumph in America, there she also played , sang and danced to grant local box-office . His success even reached around the world . However, life was not too glamorous for Marisol, as she was treated almost as a sideshow act by his managers , not allowing him to become an ordinary teenager . She was forced to keep his childlike image up to the seventies ; however , thanks to Juán Antonio Bardém changed his acting style , playing thrillers as ¨La Corrupción de Chris Miller¨ and ¨Poder Del Deseo¨ , and subsequently directed by prestigious filmmakers as Carlos Saura in ¨Carmen¨ , ¨Bodas de Sangre¨ and Mario Camus¨ in ¨Dias Del Pasado¨. Her last movies were the notorious TV series ¨Proceso a Mariana Pineda¨ and ¨Caso Cerrado¨ and she was not successful anymore . Marisol married two times , to Carlos Goyanes and Antonio Gades . Fidel Castro was the best man at her wedding to Antonio Gades . She has three daughters from her marriage to Antonio Gades , on of them the known actress Maria Esteve . Disappearing from public life in 1985, when she was still high in her career, she left everything , returned to her homeland, Malaga, and has lived as a housewife since then for her own choice . Has received many invitations to return, but has declined all of them, even simple interviews on TV. Retired In Malaga from acting at early age to become a discreet person and was then discovered much later that she had become a housewife and is now a social and humanitarian activist.
Being well produced by a great producer Manuel J. Goyanes , Marisol's usual producer , and by powerful Francoist producer Cesareo Gonzalez that produced super-productions and often financed false but breathtaking historical spectacles . It contains a diverting screenplay from notorious writers as José María Palacio and Alfonso Paso . And atmospheric and catching musical score by Augusto Algueró , including marvellous songs . As well as an evocative cinematography by Antonio L Ballesteros . The motion picture was professionally directed by Fernando Palacios, being well and solidly paced. He was a good filmmaker who directed some acceptable comedies as El dia de enamorados, Juanito , Tres de la Cruz Roja, Vuelve San Valentin, Operacion embajada, Buscame esa chica, La familia y uno mas , Whisky y Vodka and this Marisol rumbo a Rio.
