Sandy Davies, la emperatriz yanqui del toreo: "Bullfighting is a man´s world, but I don´t think there is all this machismo and sex in it. It is more valor than virility, and women have had valor, internal fortitude for hundreds of years"
What was going on more than half a century ago in then-quaint Spain? Folks on tenterhooks over smoking-or-not-to-smoke. A bright and beautiful Dutch princess falling for “young Spanish marqués of excellent lineage and large fortune”. Jeers and brawls in the bullring. Boni, the overly-amorous elephant sending his 16-ton dancing partner, Barbati, tripping and falling over spectators at the circus.
