The Full Montez

"Exotic" Maria Montez
Her men wear a turban or fez
Does jungle queen shtick
With accent so thick
That nobody knows what she says.

Dominican-born actress Maria Montez as the Siren of Atlantis (1949), Scheherazade in Arabian Nights (1942), and as an imperious Cleopatra. Image source: Shadowplay; Doctor Macro; Scarlet Showcase. There's more Montez here.

The star of the great Cobra Woman,
Maria's no snake, she's quite human,
She's cast here as twins,
One's noble, one sins,
But both sisters are sure va-va-voomin'.
