| Love in a Hot Climate
After a couple of years in Hollywood Arturo De Córdova returned to Mexico to make this opulent melodrama in which De Córdova's glamorous existence as a top surgeon is seismically disrupted by his overpowering infatuation with high-maintainance tease Gloria Marin, now wed to his brother.

Already set in the lap of luxury, shot in jagged black & white by Mexico's second-most acclaimed cameraman Alex Phillips, the cast puff their way through cigarette after cigarette as the film plunges headlong through what feels like an extended dream sequence from 'Spellbound' with surging musical accompiment by Raul Lavista, in which the very false-looking beard worn by chief psychiatrist Julio Villarrreal further adds to the generally hallucinatory feel of the piece.
