Guess who was the real "enamorada" of this movie?
28 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

This might or not be a Mexican "Taming of the shrew", but certainly it's a classic from the Mexican golden era. Some might remember it as a Felix/Armendariz movie, but I can assure you it is a Fernandez/Figueroa movie for two reasons; "Enamorada" and "The Torch". By this time, Fernandez, Figueroa and Armendariz were already well known in Hollywood, not only because of their recent success of "Maria Candelaria" (with the former Hollywood star Dolores Del Rio) obvious reasons to bring a lot of attention. Maybe that's why it wasn't equally distributed and popularized in USA, perhaps someone fall in love with it, to the point of buying it and redo it in an English version. An English version that excluded Maria Felix, but included a former Mrs. Chaplin (who also produced) and Pedo Armendariz with some of the original crew, and Cholula and the volcanoes of Puebla in the background. But no matter what version you see first, this one is by far better, but not much more realistic, considering what was the reality of the Revolution years.
