Her name was Maria Eva Duarte . Being very young, she became known as Eva Perón or simply as Evita . Beloved, hated, vituperated and elevated to the closest to holiness, her brief existence made her an indisputable icon of the twentieth century.
There are, from now, those who claim that she used her position as Argentine first lady , to achieve her personal goals. To be famous, transcendent, a star like the one he hadn't come to be in the cinema. Eva had been an actress . He only participated in six films. “ Seconds out!” ( 1937), “The Burden of the Brave” (1940), “The Most Unhappy in the People” (1941), “A Bride in distress” (1942), “The Circus's Horseback” (1945) and “The Prodigal” (from the same year).
Much more profusely he performed on radio . At that time the “ radio theater ” was a furor and Eva knew how to excel in many. The old declamatory style was still in use and much of the actors read their texts according to these rules.
However, even though at first Eva seemed desperate to reach stardom, is today remembered for her tireless struggle for women's suffrage and her obsession to improve the lives of the poor . The breakdown of social contracts by conservative governments disturbed her. Now, how was such a transformation possible?
Eva Perón was born in 1919, to a low-income family in the city of Los Toldos . At the age of 15 he traveled to Buenos Aires in order to try his luck in show business . By 1930 this was not a simple thing. It included a whole series of prejudices tied to female self-management . Therefore, it shouldn't have been easy to get to sign your first contract.
In 1945, he married Juan Domingo Perón , who in turn became president of the Argentines. A new way of life had changed its original plans. Over time, she became a politician woman . But where did that civic consciousness come from? How much does his performance in the theater have to do with his career with Perón?
“ Eva Duarte, beyond so much grief” , by historian César Maranghello, edited by Proteatro and Eudeba, reconstructs the life of the years before Eva 's conversion into politics. Undoubtedly reveal some of the keys to this mystery.
In an interview given to Claudio D. Minghetti released by Télam in 2017, the author of “Eva Duarte, beyond so much penalty”, points out one of the keys that illuminated the young actress .
“There's a Greer Garson film,” says Maranghello. It refers to “Blossoms in the Dust”, known in Spanish as “De corazón a corazón”. Filmed in 1941, apparently, according to the interview conducted by Minghetti, it became one of the central passions in Evita's life. I'd watch that movie about eleven times. Maranghello clearly states that “From heart to heart” was a kind of revelation that helped him put together the Eva Perón Foundation. “This film,” explains the author, “tells the story of a woman who helps orphaned children find a home, beyond the opposition of 'good citizens', disinterested by poor or illegitimate children.”
In the case of Eva it should be feasible to specify this moment as the engine of who would soon be described as “ the bearer of the humble ”. Beyond other influences, it was the story that would finally organize his individual political force , consistently associating some resources that were familiar to him. Microphones, cameras, huge audiences, glorious scenes and that speech that emerged from radio and cinema of the 1930s and 40s, which was undoubtedly the clearest mark of his personality.
Overflowing and passionate, “ From heart to heart ” embodied in the political soul of Eva , the product she had dreamed of. His style. His most finished reflection. The ancient hope of the dispossessed finally had a voice. That's how the dream of the actress born in Los Toldos , came true. Listening to Evita ended up being like listening to Radio Belgrano 's “ Heroines ”.
The song created by Pedro Orgambid and Alberto Favero says :
“ If I were like them,
I would see myself as I am.
Neither sadder nor more beautiful
than bliss or goodbye.
No shame about the past,
because yesterday is also today.
If I were like them,
it would be another my song.”
The film starring Greer Garson , according to Cesar Maranghello's commentary, became part of his ideal. A woman should be able to achieve her own dreams . It was then that Eva stopped playing passionate heroines such as Anne Boleyn and Josephine, to be at last one of them.
