Actress, seductress, political powerhouse and cultural icon of Argentina and the world, the life and legend of MarÃa Eva Duarte de PerÃ³n, or Evita, as she came to be known, endures to this day. Yet Evita, a woman of poor origins who rose to become the first lady of Argentina, was as hated by the upper class of her country as she was loved by the poor masses. Featuring rare film materials and interviews with Eva's acquaintances, critics and historians, a complete picture emerges of Evita's life, death, and the history of postwar Argentina. Interspersed is the bizarre story of her embalmed corpse, illustrating, decades after her death in 1952, the continuing power of her life.
