Hilda Isabel Korindo Sarli (Spanish pronunciation: [isaˈβel ˈsarli]; born 9 July 1935), nicknamed Coca, is a retiredArgentine actress and glamour model, known for her campy sexploitation films. Sarli is a considered a cultural iconand the quintessential sex symbol in her home country.
She was discovered by filmmaker Armando Bó after she became Miss Argentina in 1955. She became the star of his films, starting with El Trueno entre las hojas in 1956. The film has since become a cult classic as the first Argentine feature-length with full frontal nudity in it. She went on to become an international Latin American star, filming in Brazil,Uruguay, Paraguay, Mexico, Panama and Venezuela and films like Fuego (1969) and Fiebre (1970) reached the American and European markets.
Bó later insisted in casting her in naturalistic melodramas. After his death in 1981, Sarli retired from the cinema industry altogether but came back in the mid-90s for Jorge Polaco‘s picaresque film, La Dama Regresa (1996). The film was inspired largely on her life and public image, serving as an homage of sorts. In 2009 she teamed once more with Polaco in Arroz con leche for a bit part.
