Isabel Sarli is a retired Argentine actress, and model. She was a local sex-symbol of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.
Born Hilda Isabel Sarli Gorrindo Tito in Concordia, Entre Rios Province, Sarli was nicknamed La Coca from early childhood. She was discovered by filmmaker Armando Bo after she became Miss Argentina in 1955, and she later married him and became the star of his films, starting with El Trueno entre las hojas in 1956. She became an international Latin American star, filming in Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, Mexico, Panama and Venezuela, and films like Fuego and Fiebre (1970) reached the American and European markets.
Bo later insisted in casting her in naturalistic melodramas. After his death in 1981, Isabel Sarli retired from the cinema industry altogether but came back in the mid-nineties for Jorge Polaco's picaresque film, La Dama Regresa.
