“When I see Maria Montez on the screen she is so beautiful – I gasp. I look and I look. And I say that gorgeous creature. She is the most beautiful girl I have ever seen. Then I look at her again. Then I look in a mirror, and that gorgeous thing – she is me.” – Maria Montez
“Just think, I had never even been kissed until I became engaged . They are very strict in my homeland, though some girls have a boyfriend sometimes. But I never had a boyfriend. But believe you me, I have made up for that since, I must confess.” – Maria Montez, born in the Dominican Republic.
