María Eugenia was the first film María Félix made after her film debut in El Peñón de las Ánimas.[1][3] During filming, Félix caused a stir while shooting the opening scene of the film, which featured her in a white bathing suit, attracting publicity to Félix.[1][3] It is the only film in Félix's filmography where she appeared in swimwear.[4]

It was the only film directed by Felipe Gregorio Castillo, who afterwards became a film censor.[4][5]


In his book Más allá de las lágrimas: Espacios habitables en el cine clásico de México y Argentina, Isaac León Frías collects Emilio García Riera's view of the film, calling it a "terrible melodrama."[4] The book Archivos de la Filmoteca refers to the film as a sign of how "the Mexican melodrama [was] so subject to conventions and norms" at the time, noting that the film was directed by a later film censor.[5] María Félix herself would later refer to the film in her autobiography as "a film that had no other importance than to give me experience."[6]
