La Diosa arrodillada (The Kneeling Goddess). 1947. Directed by Roberto Gavaldón. 107 min.

With María Félix, Arturo de Córdova, Rosario Granados. The amazing María Félix—imagine the love child of Rita Hayworth and Ava Gardner—is the artist model who leads the ever-hapless Arturo de Córdova away from the arms of his innocent, blue-eyed wife and down, down, down into the ecstatic depths of degradation—which include a stop at a memorably seedy Panamanian nightclub.
