Jean Cocteau wrote a poem for her birth “La Fille aux étoiles” and Marlene Dietrich sang lullabies while cradling her.
They were a real happy family until the suddenly loss of Maria Montez the 7th September 1951 only aged 39.
The following pictures capture their love and tenderness towards their baby girl Tina.
