The bell tower scene was so similar to Vertigo (made 5 years later). Was Hitchcock inspired by Buñuel?
While a bit melodramatic, it is a wonderful portrayal of jealousy and it's downfall to madness. The acting by Arturo de Cordova is a bit over the top, but Delia Garces is wonderful as Gloria. I found it really interesting that I thought that it was very Hitchcock-ish while watching it, but I thought Bunuel had copied Hitchcock not the other way around.
Great movie. Obsessive psycho!
