Jack Palance and Paul Stewart return the favor done Hollywood by actors such as Pedro Armendáriz and Emilio Fernández, and Palance especially gives a fine bravura performance (in Spanish) as a shrimp fisherman (and skipper of the Cucamonga). María Felíx delivers her dialogue with machine-gun rapidity in stunning gowns, and Armendáriz is excellent in an unusual part. Amazingly beautiful color cinematography by Gabriel Figueroa in a number of difficult situations rises to the level of Dalí, in a subtle film from the author of Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and Blood and Sand. In Spanish No Subtitles Jack Palance y Paul Stewart corresponden al favor que le hicieran a Hollywood actores como Pedro Armendáriz y Emilio Fernández. Palance, en especial, hace una excelente y animada actuación en español como pescador y capitán del barco camaronero Cucamonga. María Félix habla como ametralladora y luce bellísima en preciosos vestidos largos mientras que Armendáriz es excelente en un papel poco usual para él. A pesar de enfrentarse a situaciones difíciles, Gabriel Figueroa alcanza niveles de Salvador Dalí con su asombrosamente hermosa cinematografía a color en esta película del autor de Los Cuatro Jinetes del Apocalipsis y Sangre y Arena. In Spanish No Subtitles

A Worthy Post Epoca Dorada Effort This is a reasonable effort from director Roberto Galvadón (La Otra, Macario, Gallo de Oro). Maria Felix plays a woman happily married to Pedro Armendáriz, a fisherman. They live in a simple little pueblo on the Sinaloan coast. Then a Gringo (Jack Palance) steams into port, and the story goes from there. Adapted from a novel by Vicente Blasco Ibáñez, who also wrote the story for Rudolph Valentino’s silent classic Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
