La Violetera
The legendary Spanish screen siren Sarita Montiel headlines this gentle romantic drama; she stars as Soledad, a beautiful yet humble violet seller whose life turns a fantastic corner when she meets and falls deeply in love with the wealthy suitor Fernando. Unfortunately, because he is the product of Madrid's upper crust, the reality of class differences soon checks in and he splits off from her. Yet Soledad aggressively pursues her own brand of success and establishes herself as a popular singer - effectively giving herself another chance with her old love. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

El Ultimo Cuple
Sarita (aka Sara) Montiel stars in this Spanish musical, which was directed by Juan De Orduna, the man who 10 years earlier first recognized the star potential of the multitalented Montiel. Set in the late 19th century, the story concerns a famous music-hall singer who achieves fame with the help of a handsome impresario (Aramndo Calvo). At the height of her success, our heroine falls for a much-younger bullfighter (Enrique Vera). Bankrolling his career, she is ruined when he dies in the ring. A happy ending is set in motion by the impresario, who has quietly loved the singer all along. El Ultimo Cuple was released in English-speaking countries as The Last Torch Song. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
