Happy 75th Birthday Perla Cristal

Perla Cristal Lijtik was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina on September 29, 1937. A star in her home country of Argentina, Pearl Crystal has managed to reach and maintain a leading and prominent place in the world of entertainment. An interpreter of remarkable intensity and magnetism a solo singer and actress, she became a regular presence and star in films and television exploiting her racial and curvaceous body, participating in both the most bizarre genre cinema at the hand of director Jesus Franco (“The Awful Dr. Orloff” (1962) “The Mistresses of Dr. Jekyll” (1964) etc.) and Spaghetti westerns, and in the commercial cinema (“Búsqueme a esa chica” (1964), “Hoy como ayer” (1966), “Crónica de nueve meses” (1967), “Juicio de faldas”, “Por qué pecamos a los cuarenta” (both 1969)), and even appeared in some of the most remarkable new Spanish cinema (“Culpable para un delito” (1966) “Oscuros sueños de agosto” (1967), “Hay que matar a B,” (1975)) Although her star fell after the mid-seventies, she is still working occasionally for the small screen, and became a regular face in the glorious days of the Studio 1 and other similar dramas. Perla appeared in 7 Euro-westerns from “Ballad of a Bounty Hunter” 1965 to “Dust in the Sun” (1973). Today we celebrate Perla Cristal’s 75th birthday.
