The Other Woman (La otra)
Free with Museum admission!
The Other Woman finds genre director Roberto Gavaldón telling a dark crime story of passion and death. Magdalena kills her wealthy twin sister and assumes her identity, unaware that her sibling’s life had been far from irreproachable. The murder results in surprising consequences.
Dolores del Rio stars in the film, portraying both sisters. Influenced by American film noir, the film exhibits stylistic richness and complexity. This intense criminal drama was later remade in Hollywood as Dead Ringer (1964), featuring Bette Davis as both female characters.
