La otra mujer (English: "The Other Woman") is a 1972 Mexican comedy drama film directed by Julián Soler and starring Mauricio Garcés, Saby Kamalich and María Duval.[1] The film is a remake of the Mexican film Mi esposa y la otra (1952), which in turn is a remake of the Argentine film The Kids Grow Up (1942).[2]


Cristina (Saby Kamalich) and Ricardo (Félix González) have three children: Pablo (José Luis Moreno), Martha (Paula Cusi) and Claudia (Delia Peña Orta), but they are not married, because Ricardo is married to another woman, Alicia (María Duval). When he finds himself in a hurry when it seems that Alicia is going to find out about her secret life, Ricardo asks Alicia's cousin, Antonio (Mauricio Garcés), to help him by pretending to be Cristina's husband.



Comparing the film with its previous 1952 and 1942 film versions, Emilio García Riera said that the films of 1942 and 1952 were better.[2] Due to the scene that shows Garcés's character accompanied by an English-speaking blonde woman during a card game, in Stereotyped Images of United States Citizens in Mexican Cinema, 1930-1990, David E. Wilt cited the film as one of the films in Mexican cinema that extolled the figure of the blonde woman as an object of desire in Mexico.[3]

These types of roles reinforce the image of the Blonde as a character whose primary function is sexual, even before she takes any assertive action. But in Mexican cinema the male rarely has to make the first move, since the Blonde actively seeks out sexual partners, […] therefore is subjected to frequent propositions, comments and looks by the male characters in the film. She is often treated as little more than a chattel, a plaything, a piece of common property. In La Otra Mujer (The Other Woman, 1971), [sic] for instance, gambler Antonio (Mauricio Garcés) is playing cards with several other men in his hotel suite. Antonio is accompanied by an English-speaking Blonde. […]
