Do you want a book about Soledad Miranda? Please consider supporting my fundraiser!

Soledad Miranda Sings Updated! My compilation album of Soledad's songs has been updated with three additional songs she sang in the movies, higher quality recordings of her eight yé-yé songs, and an additional bonus track, plus updated, high-quality artwork and liner notes. Plus, it's now available as a digital MP3 download, with all artwork, for only $10! You can order below. If you want a CD version, head to the records page for options. On a related note, I made music videos for two of Soledad's pop songs using footage of her dancing in her movies. Click here for "No lo quiero" and click here for "El color del amor".

Photos for Sale: I have many high-resolution photos of Soledad, and you can order downloads of them for a nominal charge. All are high enough quality for printing, pre-sized for 8x10 inch photos, and have been optimized with spots and scratches removed. Visit the store for more information.

Photo Galleries Updated: I have added over 60 rare photos to the publicity/modeling and personal/candid photo galleries, including magazine photo shoots and pictures of Soledad with her friends and family. Additionally, most of the photo pages for Soledad's movies have been updated with even more stills, lobby cards, and posters, including new, higher-quality screencaps for several films.

Long-"Lost" Movie Recovered! New for 2015! Soledad's rarest film has been found and preserved for the ages. Un día en Lisboa is a treasure and now screencaps from the film are available on this website.

New Fan Art: The fan art section has been updated with over 20 beautiful new additions from some very talented artists who happen to be fans of Soledad.

Soledad, the Thriller? Author Cristiana Astori let me know that she wrote a thriller about Jess Franco and Soledad Miranda called Tutto quel nero (All that is black), published in 2011 by Il Giallo Mondadori. Unfortunately it was only on newsstands for a month and back issues are sold out, but if you are interested in reading it (in Italian) please send a request for reprinting the edition to expressing your interest. Astori also hopes that some editor will read about it on this site and decide to republish it in English or Spanish... If you are interested you can find her on Facebook.

My Jess Franco Interview: I interviewed Jess Franco himself about Soledad Miranda in September 2009 at the Fantastic Fest in Austin. Click here to read the interview and all about meeting Franco and here to listen to the interview.

Mainstream Recognition: Soledad is well-known among genre fans, but not as famous among the general public. However, she has been getting some mainstream recognition in recent years, which is really nice. I have added a number of new links to the Links page. They are to websites and blogs which in some way or another recognize or celebrate Soledad. Honors include: 20 Hottest Girls of the 1960s, 10 Sexiest Female Vampires of All Time, Nerd Girl of Note, Soledad Miranda Appreciation Month, Top 26 Sexiest Women in Horror, Cult Actress of the Month, Style Icon of the Past, Femme Fatale Friday, Saturday Scream Queen, and Babe of Yore, among others. Another instance of Soledad reaching the mainstream is this blast from the past... does anyone remember Alternative Nation on MTV? Apparently they aired a music video from Vampyros Lesbos (of "The Lions and the Cucumber"), which naturally features Soledad quite a bit. Does anyone remember seeing Soledad on MTV in the 1990s?

Why Soledad Miranda? I'm not certain what it is about this exquisite beauty that so captivates me. To be sure, she has a tremendous screen presence. She was also very talented. She died right before she was about to become a big movie star. The mystique surrounding her life and death is fascinating and her performances are memorable. Once you've seen her on screen, you're not likely to ever forget her. Writers, artists, and musicians have paid tribute to her now and then, as have those who were lucky enough to know and work with her. Here, everything about Soledad, her life, and her work is compiled in one place. I have gathered every bit of information and picture I could find and shaped it into an online tribute to Soledad, the actress and the person. Hopefully my graphics will put you in a "sexadelic" state of mind... you might even want to pop your Vampyros Lesbos soundtrack in the stereo while you explore Soledad's world. I hope that the fans enjoy, and that the cult continues to grow - as it has since the beginning of this website, when it was known as Soledad Miranda: Blood Queen. Back then, Soledad's fans mostly knew her as a sexy scream queen from Jess Franco movies, so the title fit. But now, after the rediscovery of a multitude of her other talents in film, dance, and music, a renaming of the site was appropriate. The word "sublime" is present in many languages, and suggests a quality of greatness with which nothing else can be compared and which is beyond all possibility of calculation, measurement, or imitation. I think Soledad's fans agree that her physical beauty and artistic talent are truly sublime, and some fans even extend this feeling to the metaphysical and spiritual. You can see the evolution of the site in the banners below. Spread your love of Soledad by using them on the web. The new design, coincidentally, was created on Soledad's birthday.

Viva Soledad!
