Cast (feature film)

Varietes (1971) as Ana Marques
Singer Ana Marquez is dreaming of stardom while appearing in the cast of a traveling variety show led by superstar Carmen Soler who is way past her prime but refuses to retire gracefully. Meanwhile Ana is having a love affair with piano player Miguel who comes from a wealthy and conservative family that frowns upon his show business career and specially on his relationship with a show girl. As time passes without Ana achieving success, Miguel tries to talk her into quitting and marrying him but Ana loves the stage too much and finally renounces Miguel. An opportunity opens up for Ana when some composers agree to write good songs for her but Carmen finds out and uses her influence to steal the songs from her. Ana decides to quit but she is stopped by Arturo Robles the owner of an important chain of theaters who offers to help her. Soon it is obvious that he expects Ana to become his mistress in exchange for launching her career. Ana accepts but before the new plans develop Carmen is taken ill and Ana goes on the stage as her replacement. She is an uncontested success and decides to break up with Arturo since she has proven to everybody and to herself that she can make it on her own. Time passes and Ana is now a superstar in another traveling show. All her dreams have come true and she expects to remain in the number one spot for many years. She doesnÂ’t even notice that in the cast of her show there is pretty young singer who dreams of stardom and is waiting patiently for her own turn to shine.
