Whatever Lola Wants.....

Whatever Lola Wants......

A newly restored version of the classic 1955 movie LOLA MONTES is playing in an exclusive showing at New York's FILM FORUM from Oct.10th -30th.


This film is beautiful and surreal and has a dreamlike quality to it as it weaves the real life tale of one of the most provocative female entertainers we have ever known.   She was a dancer who was as famous for her wealthy lovers as she was for her stage work.  She debuted on the London stage and billed herself as "LOLA MONTES.. the Spanish Dancer".  In reality she was born in Ireland and spent part of her childhood in India.MADONNA - CONFESSIONS TOUR

Montes (or Montez) was a true trailblazer.   She was at the height of her career in the 1840's.. a century before women had the right to vote or there were other feminists such as Coco Chanel or Sarah Bernhardt.   I actually wrote about Montes as the inspiration for Madonna for the Confession tour.. click the link below for that post, and get to the film forum asap.. or check the art house theater schedule in your town!  Watch the trailer below - and find the DVD.
