Mexico 1946
Dir Roberto Gavaldón
With Dolores del Rio, Agustín Irusta, Víctor Junco
English subtitles

The beautiful Dolores del Rio returned to Mexico from Hollywood in 1942 and became one of the great stars of the Mexican Golden Age. Gavaldón’s twisty ‘ciné negro’ gifts her an especially juicy dual role as identical twins – ‘bad’ man-eater Magdalena, and ‘good’, lowly María. But, consumed with envy towards her wealthy sister, is María as without sin as she seems?
