Dolores del Rio,
Up till 1943, the most productive movies from Mexico were stories from the rural life of the Country. Pictures like "Alla en el rancho grande(1936)" had been a great success. But Mexico was now turning to a more "urban" society. In part due to the war, Mexico was now trying to take advantage over other competitors. Spain and Argentina which held close ties to the Axis Nations, were denied support from the USA in their productions. Mexico took advantage of this, and produced films like this one, where there was a shift to the urban problems. This is a movie about a Union leader that tries to fight the corrupt leaders of the local Government. Julio Bracho, the Director of this film, whose background was in the theater, applies his techniques in such a manner that this picture combines the best styles of both schools in order to make it a good one. This could very well be, one of the first movies of what was later known as the "Golden age of the Mexican cinematography"
