Maria Montez (1912 – 1951) was a motion picture actress who gained fame and popularity in the 1940's as an exotic beauty starring in a series of filmed-in-Technicolor costume adventure films. Her screen image was that of a Latin seductress, dressed in fanciful costumes and sparkling jewels. She was so identified with these adventure epics that she became known as "The Queen of Technicolor."
Ariadne (/æriˈædniː/; Greek: Ἀριάδνη; Latin: Ariadne), in Greek mythology, was the daughter of Minos, King of Crete, and his queen Pasiphaë, daughter of Helios. She is mostly associated with mazes and labyrinths, due to her involvement in the myths of the Minotaur and Theseus. In some stories, she became the bride of the god Dionysus, with the question of her background as being either a mortal or a goddess varying in those accounts.by: Thalia Took
