Style Icons: Female »Soledad Miranda

Blood Queen

Gorgeous, mysterious, as delicate as a flower, yet dangerous and brooding, I have no doubt that Spanish actress Soledad Miranda would have been an international star.

Everything was aligned for her to achieve world wide fame when a car accident tragically took her away at the age 27.

She has since become a cult super star with many Westerns and horror flicks on her resume, most famously the lesbian vampire flick, Vampyros Lesbos, which definitely has it’s charms and style galore but is still a difficult movie to get through.

Miranda, however, is a joy to watch on screen no matter how tedious the film.

    Ah, Soledad. What a pity. Great choice of an icon!

    For better or for worse, watching Soledad generally means watching Jess Franco. And even as a fan of Franco’s, I have to admit that he’s usually either brilliant or awful–and often both in the course of a single movie. It’s weird, because he’s capable of creating beautiful imagery… but more often he just seems bored. As you say, Vampyros Lesbos is quite tedious despite Soledad and a great score and some beautiful scenery. The Devil Came From Akasava is a much more all-around entertaining Soledad effort from Franco. But if you’re interested in seeing a genuine masterpiece from the director (sadly sans Soledad), check out Venus in Furs. It’s Mulholland Drive thirty years before Mulholland Drive!
