La Casa de la Zorra (the She-Wolf's House) was an interesting film about a mother who runs a gambling establishment in Mexico unbeknown to her son (Montalban) whom she is sending to the University for a prestigious career.
As the film develops and he is taken to the house he realizes that his mother has been leading a "double life". The conflicts are resolved -not without melodramatic moments.
Virigina Fabregas and her son appear in this film. She was always called "Dona" Virginia Fabregas in Mexican art circles since her career began in theatre and went on into films. Her son, Manuel, also appears in the film. A handsome young man he never realized his potential on film but went on to star in Spanish language versions of Broadway musicals in Mexico - notably, "Mi Bella Dama".
Montalban had some good scenes in the movie and of course was a handsome protagonist.
