La Otra (The Other One). 1964. Directed by Roberto Gavaldón. 98 min.
With Dolores del Rio, Agustín Irusta, Víctor Junco. Gavaldón collaborated with his favorite screenwriter, José Revueltas, to create this distinctly Mexican variant on the time-honored Evil Twin plot: this time, it’s the great Dolores del Rio, returning to Mexico from her Hollywood period, who plays the central dual role, as a meek, bespectacled manicurist and her mercenary, man-eating sister. But in this case, envy proves to be a greater sin than avarice.
