The Girl of Your Dreams (Spanish: La niña de tus ojos) is a 1998 Spanish drama film produced and directed by Fernando Trueba and starring Penélope Cruz, Antonio Resines, Jorge Sanz, Rosa Maria Sardà and Santiago Segura. The story centers on fictional Spanish Andalusian actress Macarena Granada, with whom Joseph Goebbels falls in love.
The story is based on facts: during the Spanish Civil War, cinema studios supported the Republic, so Franco's followers had to go to Germany or Italy to make fictional films at Universum Film AG, known as UFA studios in Berlin to shoot both Spanish and German language versions.
For example, in 1938 Florián Rey filmed Carmen, la de Triana and a German-language double film named Andalusische Nächte (English: Nights in Andalusia), both starring Imperio Argentina, an Argentine-Spanish actress with whom, according to legend, Hitler fell in love. Imperio Argentina sued producers and director for using her life without permission to make this film.
