The Girl of Your Dreams (Spanish: La niña de tus ojos) is a 1998 Spanish drama film produced and directed by Fernando Trueba based on facts: during the Spanish Civil War, cinema studios supported the Republic, so Franco's followers had to go to Germany or Italy to make fictional films at Universum Film AG, known as UFA studios in Berlin to shoot both Spanish and German language versions. For example, in 1938 Florián Rey filmed Carmen, la de Triana and a German-language double film named Andalusische Nächte (English: Nights in Andalusia), both starring Imperio Argentina, an actress with whom, according to legend, Hitler fell in love. Imperio Argentina sued producers and director for using her life without permission to make this film. In Trueba's film, Goebbels falls in love with the Spanish Andalusian actress Macarena Granada (Penélope Cruz).
