Haunting beauty, an untimely death, and a legacy of sexy-spooky horror films have combined to create a massive cult following for the stunningly gorgeous and unfairly doomed Soledad Miranda. Born in Seville, Spain, in 1943 and tragically taken by a road accident in 1970, Soledad is the undisputed, eternal Queen of European Vampire Flicks. Expert critics of the genre describe her in language such as "pale, mysterious, enigmatic, provocative, unknowable." She looked like a lucky cross between Ali McGraw and Salma Hayak, only more refined, and willing to provide prolonged access to her thatch, breasts, and ass crack. Any movie in which she appeared provides a valuable watching experience. Of particular skinterest are Vampyros Lesbos (1970) and Eugenie: DeSade (1970). After her death, Soledad's spirit is said to have visited the dreams and possessed the actresses working with Jesus Franco, the Spanish director who discovered her and created her greatest works.
