Evita Saint or Sinner The story of Eva Peron is a fascinating one Evita as she is known enjoyed a rise to power like no other The details of this ascension are often disputed making Santa Evitas tale all the more intriguing Maria Eva Duarte was born on May 7 19191 the fifth and youngest illegitimate child of Juan Duarte and his mistress Juan Ibarguen The week of her birth was known as Tragic Week when the army massacred striking workers perhaps a foreshadow of what was to come in her life2 Eva spent her childhood in an adobe farmhouse with farm animals and earthen floors In the farming trade Juan Duarte incurred many debts eventually leaving him with nothing Thus early in her life Eva learnt the humiliation of poverty The Duartes were further put down by the stiff Argentine caste system which divided the poor from the wealthy Being a bastard child Eva and her four sisters were seen as brats and were stopped from associating with the other village children Rejection thrown upon young Eva through no fault of her own would not be forgotten nor forgiven3 At age fifteen Eva Duarte set out to become a radio actress She knew she could be like the women in the movie magazines she either stole or borrowed from her friends Eva met singer Agustin Magaldi and packed her bags and sneaked out of her mothers boarding house to the city of Buenos Aires Once Eva learned the rules of the casting couch she dropped Magaldi and began her ascent to stardom For years she wandered the streets auditioned and did whatever she had to do no matter how distasteful Eva gained modeling work and small parts in radio plays frequenting nightclubs and began to find better work
