Enamorada ("Enamoured") is a 1946 Mexican drama film directed by Emilio Fernández and starring María Félix and Pedro Armendáriz. 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.

Plot summary[edit]

The revolutionary Jose Juan Reyes (Pedro Armendáriz) takes the town of Cholula, Puebla, and takes the money of the rich men of the zone for the Mexican Revolution. Jose Juan fell in love with the Señorita Beatriz Peñafiel (María Félix), the explosive daughter of the richest man of the area.

Notes and references[edit]

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.
