Along with his cousin and dance partner Florencia Perez (aka Rosario), Antonio Ruiz Soler ranked among Spain's top flamenco dancers of the '40s. His renown led to his appearance in a few Hollywood films, notable Ziegfeld Girl (1941) and Honeymoon (1947). Ruiz Solar and Rosario parted ways in 1952, and he went on to form his own dance troupe. Ruiz Solar also choreographed and performed in several Spanish films from the '50s through the early '70s.
