This is a great movie Maria at the top of her beauty and power i don't think Romulo Gallego the author of the novel never image a more perfect Dona Barbara than Maria Felix she has everything the part required , this was her third movie , the one that will immortalized her for eternity , maria based in this part created her own legend , i saw the movie long ago and i love it , have to said back in my country Cuba they did the television version of dona barbara with a very great actress and beautiful Raquel Revuelta i will said even maria was more beautiful and more charismatic Raquel was a better actress but maria was incomparable,maria is the divina garza
