Libertad María de los Ángeles Vichich Blanco ; 24 February 1938 – 29 April 2021) was an Argentine film actress, famous for starring in several erotic films during the 1960s.
Leblanc was one of Argentina’s platinum blonde sex symbols in the 1960s and 1970s, the buxom blonde appeared in a number of adult-oriented films often with nudity or sexual content such as Harassed (Acosada)(1964). Many of her films were controversial; the 1968 film La Endemoniada was also known in English as A Woman Possessed, a vampirish horror film with explicit nudity. In 1967 she appeared in the lustful La Venus maldita. In 1969 she appeared in Deliciosamente amoral, again lined with controversy.
Leblanc also appeared in TV versions of Nana (the novel of Émile Zola), Lola Montès and Lady Hamilton.
She was offered a contract from Columbia Pictures, but her ex-husband refused to let her leave with her daughter to another country, so she declined the offer. Also, she was considered a “rival” of Isabel Sarli, who made the same style of films. Mirtha Legrand reunited both stars in 1994, when Libertad admitted that their “rivalry” was only a LeBlanc publicity stunt, so both film stars remained friends until their death. Leblanc jokingly suggested Sarli getting rid of her pets. Isabel, for her part, showed Libertad up every time she brazenly took years off of the blonde diva’s actual age. In the same manner, she told that she was a nineteen-year-old divorcée in the early sixties.
