Also known as "Valencia's Lovers".

Produced by Tiffany Productions and distributed by Metro Godlwyn Mayer, this film caused a diplomatic dispute between Spain, the United States and MGM. The conflict broke out when a copy of the original was exhibited in Brussels. Previosly, the Spanish Government had been assured by MGM representatives that the original would be cut to avoid the most offensive aspects for Spain. Feeling fooled by the Company, the Spanish Gov. raised a ban on MGM films which forced the intervention of the Department of State and the MPPDA's Foreign Department and lasted until the American Company agreed to destroy all the existing copies. This was the first incident of this sort between Spain and one of the Majors. The only other case of "offensive" or "antispanish" film which caused such amount of trouble to American Motion Pictures Companies in Spain prior to Franco's Dictatorship was the one concerning the Paramount Pictures Film "The Devil is a Woman" in 1933-34. For the American documentation on this affair: NARA RG 59, 84 & 151; for the Spanish doc: AGA, AAEE.
