In September 2009, I, creator of SoledadMiranda.com and the undisputed queen of Soledad Miranda research in the world, had the unbelievable chance to interview someone who not only knew her very well, but was responsible for her lasting fame: Jess Franco. You can read an account of the circumstances here: http://soledadmiranda.com/fantastic.html

For the past five years the interview has existed in text form on my website, but now I have a good microphone so I held the mini tape player up to the microphone to preserve Jess's words (RIP) digitally forever, and share them with the rest of the world. I decided to interview him primarily in French because he was supposedly better in French than English, and I do speak French. The interview switches at times to English per Jess, but the whole piece is translated on screen in English (except Spanish conversation between Jess and Lina Romay, who was also there [RIP], as I sadly still am not very good at Spanish).

Again, please visit http://soledadmiranda.com/fantastic.html to read how I was able to meet and interview Jess, and hang out with him too! Photos are there, and lots more. I hope you enjoy my labor of love. Jess has a great memory of Soledad's character, but a couple of inaccuracies in terms of her non-Franco career as noted on the slides. ;)

(Apologies to any authors misquoted in the interview. I got the referenced quotes from websites, magazine articles, books, etc.)
