Mexican film luminary Maria Felix stars in the Argentine La Pasion Desnuda (Naked Passion). The film is based on the legend of Thais, as committed to print by Anatole France. Felix plays a predatory female who drives a prominent doctor to his doom. She also destroys the lives of the doctor's daughter and the daughter's fiancé. After 11 reels of sex and sin, the "heroine" seeks divine redemption; what she gets is divine retribution. La Pasion Desnuda was able to secure a few American bookings thanks to the box-office pull of Maria Felix's male co-star, Carlos Thompson.
