Sara Montiel - 12 November 1963

Sara Montiel aka Sarita Montiel - born on 10 March 1928 - had been making movies since 1943 when she was 15 years old. In 1950 Sarita moved to Mexico - that was experiencing its film golden age. She also made movies in the USA (Serenade, Stronghold, Vera Cruz) and Cuba. 

Sarita moved back to Spain in 1957 and in 1958, she starred in 'La violetera' which made her an overnight sensation world wide. In 1959, Sarita filmed 'Mi ultimo tango' in Buenos Aires and stayed a few days in Brazil. 

Sara was back in Brazil in November 1963, due to her starring in 'Samba', a Spanish film that would be shot during the 1964 Carnaval celebrations in Rio de Janeiro. on 9, 10, 11 & 12 February 1964.

That's when Paulinho Machado de Carvalho, the man with the dough at Sao Paulo's TV Record made her an offer she could not refuse: to sing twice in one eveming at Teatro Record for an undisclosed amount of money.

Sarita Montiel sings at Teatro Record in São Paulo in an article in TV guide  'SP na TV' 2 December 1963.

Sara Montiel sings at Teatro Record on 12 November 1963 at 8 PM and 10 PM.
now, I wonder whether Sarita sang at 5:00 PM or 8:00 PM on 12 November 1963. These ads are conflicting altogether... 

While Sarita Montiel appeared live at Teatro Record in São Paulo, in 12 November 1963, 'Sublime Melodia' aka 'Pecado de amor' (1961) was shown at Cine Rio (Conjunto Nacional), Cine Atlas (Av. Rio Branco), Cine Pigalle (Largo do Arouche), Cine Jardim (rua Fradique Coutinho), Leblon e Itapura.
