Too bad this movie does not exist today as it would be a great aide in teaching 19th century Spanish literature
11 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film as a child at a theater in Tampa that specialized in Spanish language films.

The story is based on a classic 19th century Spanish novel by the same name by Juan Valera in which a young seminarian spends time in his deceased uncle's estate and falls in love with the young, charming widow, Pepita Jimenez.

The movie offered many comic/serious episodes as the young man deals with his emotions to Pepita and his commitment to the Church. Without any malice or overt sexuality the bonding of these two characters materializes and the young man abandons his religious vocation for marriage to the young and beautiful Pepita.

Many of the supporting artists were consummate actors among them Julio Villareal, Consuelo Guerrero de Luna and Fortuno Bonanova who later made a career in Hollywood and acted opposite Montalban in "Fiesta".

The movie was an excellent production which I still recall after many decades and showcased the versatility of Montalban in both serious and comic episodes.
