Spanish film star Sara Montiel dies at age 85
MADRID (AP) — Sara Montiel, one of Spain's most important film actresses and the first to have crossed the Atlantic to also become a Hollywood star, has died. She was 85.
Her biographer Peter Villora says Montiel died at her home in Madrid after passing out on Monday.
Montiel was born Maria Antonia Abad in Campo de Criptana in the central region of La Mancha. An acknowledged beauty with a sultry, almost husky singing voice, Montiel starred in more than 50 films, many of which were musicals.
She married Anthony Mann, an American actor and film director, in 1957, but had a tempestuous love life.
