With Marga López, Miguel Inclán, Rodolfo Acosta
English subtitles

Emilio Fernández turned to urban melodrama with this powerful tale of two sisters. López plays the self-sacrificing Mercedes, who secretly endures the indignities of working in the seedy Sálon México nightclub so that she can keep her younger sister in an expensive convent school. Gabriel Figueroa’s magnificent cinematography revels in the club’s smoke-filled environs, and conjures an intoxicating twilight netherworld.
