Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Sarita (aka Sara) Montiel stars in this Spanish musical, which was directed by Juan De Orduna, the man who 10 years earlier first recognized the star potential of the multitalented Montiel. Set in the late 19th century, the story concerns a famous music-hall singer who achieves fame with the help of a handsome impresario (Aramndo Calvo). At the height of her success, our heroine falls for a much-younger bullfighter (Enrique Vera). Bankrolling his career, she is ruined when he dies in the ring. A happy ending is set in motion by the impresario, who has quietly loved the singer all along. El Ultimo Cuple was released in English-speaking countries as The Last Torch Song.
