The film was remade in 1950 as The Torch with Armendáriz repeating his role alongside Paulette Goddard who was credited as an associate producer on the film.


The revolutionary José Juan Reyes (Pedro Armendáriz) takes the town of Cholula, Puebla and demands contributions from its wealthiest citizens for the Mexican Revolution. However, his plans are disrupted when he falls in love with the Señorita Beatriz Peñafiel (María Félix), the tempestuous daughter of the town's richest man.


The film was entered into the 1947 Cannes Film Festival. The film was inspired by William Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. The final scene was inspired by the final scene in Josef von Sternberg's Morocco.

This was the first María Félix and Emilio Fernández film collaboration. The others were Rio Escondido, Maclovia, Reportaje and El Rapto.


A restoration of the film by the UCLA Film & Television Archive and the World Cinema Project will screen at the 71st edition of the Cannes Film Festival under the Cannes Classics section in May 2018.[1]
