This paper analyzes the representation of national identity in Libertad Lamarque's Argentinean movies. As a singer, the artist received the title Reina del Tango (Queen of Tango), and was also the main protagonist of 1930s and 1940s Argentinean movie productions. Due to alleged conflicts with Eva Perón, her artistic career in Argentina ended abruptly by the late 1940s, when she stopped receiving invitations to work in the country and had to move to Mexico. In her cinematographic career in Argentina, though, Libertad contributed to build and disseminate a particular version of the Argentinean national identity.
